CM 653 Spirit World and the Global Church

Dates: May 18-19 and 22-26, with required field trip to be arranged on May 21
Time: M-F 8:30-11:30am and 1:30-4:30pm

Credits: 3 SH
Location: Online
Instructor: James Krabill
Course Description: This course will explore the biblical foundations of the spirit world and trace how these understandings have been both applied and challenged throughout the history of the Western Church. From there we will examine how the conversation is expanding as Western Christians encounter spiritual realities present in the rapidly growing churches of the global south (Africa, Asia and Latin America). Particular themes also treated will include: the Pentecostal appeal among struggling social classes, the language of “spiritual warfare” and peace theology, and case studies of North American congregations and church leaders dealing with difficult “hard cases” involving spiritual dimensions.
