SS 170: Christianity in the 21st Century World is offered online by Prairie College. What in the world is God doing today? God is a missionary God who reaches out to humankind, yet there is so much injustice in the world. Does God care? Should we care? We begin with an overview of “mission” in the Bible, followed by a brief look at mission history. Then we move to what God is doing in the world today. How can we engage in sharing Christ in Canada and across the world both through our words and actions? Our course topics include, but are not limited to, the following: Bible translation, church planting, community development, contextualization, Muslim ministry, global slavery, violence and other aspects of social justice. Since a) most of Christ’s church today islocated in the Majority World, and b) most people who have not heard of Christ are also located in that part of the world, and c) most of the social justice issues in the world relateto the poor,we will focus,though not exclusively,on the world outside of Canada. Please note this is not a class inBible ortheology; rather it is part of the Social Sciences core.
