Narrative Theology

Teachers: Jerry Frumento '79
Open to: Seniors
Length: 1 Semester

This course takes a non-conventional approach into the exploration of theological and moral issues. Is there a connection between who we understand God or the godly to “BE” and the way we live our lives. Does philosophy and our rational mind alone define God? Can we know who God is or must we experience this God in our own lives? We will examine the human condition in and through “Story”. We will reflect on our own life – our own “Story”. In these stories, we will investigate how one’s belief in God or the struggles to know if God even exists, influences and determines a person’s behavior. We engage with powerful stories through literature and film that will enlighten and challenge us to identify the catch at least a glimpse of the Divine.
