Module topics

  • Theology & Spirituality

... helps students to recognise the features of an authentic evangelical spirituality, to appreciate the historic sweep and distinct categories of the Christian devotional heritage, and to develop with discernment theologically-informed methods for exploring the resources of the classic and contemporary contributions to Christian spirituality.

  • Theology & Church

... leads students to revisit their doctrine of the Church, describes the received ecclesiology, analyses the factors that led to its formulation, and identifies aspects that require re-formulation in the light of current knowledge and societal development. This process will also help students better understand the process of doctrinal formulations.

  • Theology & Contextualization

... enables students to appreciate different historical and contemporary approaches to communicating the Gospel in settings dominated by other faiths, to evaluate, affirm and challenge a given culture in the light of Scripture, and to communicate biblical truth in language and images that are cultural relevant and intelligible.

  • Theology & Worldviews

... helps students examine the elements of a Christian worldview, and provides conceptual tools for cultural analysis. Students are challenged to examine their worldview critically in comparison with other major worldviews, and apply their worldview to personal, cultural and social issues they face.

  • Theology & Anthropology

... enables students to examine the subject of humanity from a classical theological perspective with contemporary and contextual applications for Asia. The scope of this module involves issues related to the origin, nature, and destiny of humanity, along with various theological and ethical issues related to the Christian affirmation of humanity as created in the image of God.

  • Theology & Hermeneutics

... assists students to address two topics: First, in contextual biblical hermeneutics students will appreciate cultural elements within their interpretive contexts, and use them to help read and interpret Scripture. Second, in theological interpretation of Scripture students will go beyond the grammatical-historical method to read biblical texts in light of the canonical and redemptive historical contexts.

  • Contemporary Asian Theologies

... introduces to students the need for biblical and contextual theology in the Asian context and critically reviews attempts so far for doing this. Students are given tools and understanding to begin the process of developing a biblical contextual theology for their own context.

  • Theology & Society

... leads students to explore the relationship between Christian theology and social development, with particular reference to globalisation, theories of development, and children. Students will acquire fresh insights into theology in the light and context of social development, and obtain skills to critique models of social development theologically.

  • Theology & Religions

... provides students with the epistemological background for theology and religion, describes the representative positions in Christian theology of religion, explores Christian discourse with other religions, and discusses current priorities in theology and mission as a result of these various positions.
