Syllabus: History and Traditions of Spiritual Formation

Taking advantage of a snow day here in Boston to post the second of Tom Schwanda’s two syllabi. The first was posted last week. Here’s the description:

This course traces some of the dominant themes of Christian spirituality. Through biblical, theological, and historical study we will examine how various individuals and movements have experienced and sought to nurture their relationship with the Triune God. Particular attention is paid to developing the skills of discernment for reading primary sources.

As before, copies of the syllabus are available to SSCS members by contacting the moderator.

Syllabus: Spiritual Theology: Knowing and Experiencing God

Tom Schwanda of Wheaton College is making two syllabi available. Here is a description of the first:

Spiritual theology is the practical, experiential exploration into the major themes of Christian theology. It is concerned with both how we think about God and how we live our lives with God and others. Therefore, this course seeks to integrate the principles and practices of doctrine and life. Special attention will be placed upon our experience of God and how we can reflect upon those experiences to deepen our knowledge and love of God and our neighbor.

Copies of this syllabus are available to SSCS members by contacting the moderator. SSCS membership information is available here.
