Our second syllabus comes from Charles J. Scalise. He describes it as a syllabus for “a course I taught last year to master’s-degree students at both Fuller Northwest in Seattle and Fuller Seminary in Pasadena.” Here is the course description:
This reading seminar seeks to involve students in spiritual reading, historical study, and critical interpretation of diverse classics of Christian spirituality across major historical periods of the Christian movement. Emphasis will be placed upon a blend of spiritual and critical understanding of the common readings and student-chosen spiritual classics. Attention will also be given to the disciplines of regular spiritual reading of Scripture in the history of the church and individual retreat.
