This course introduces the field of Christian ethics by (1) studying major theoretical approaches, in particular focusing upon Anglican and Lutheran conceptions, and (2) exploring how Christians might address contemporary ethical issues. The course thus aims to advance students' historical and theoretical knowledge but to do so in a way that provides resources for contemporary moral decision-­‐making and pastoral leadership. The course will be conducted online and asynchronously. Students will be required to read assigned texts, submit reflection papers on a regular basis, participate in online discussions, and write a final paper. NOTE: Participants are expected to complete the Orientation to Online Learning offered on Moodle prior to the first class session.
