The final project will be both theoretical and practical, addressing the link between the gospel and the church and/or culture. It will demonstrate a strong theoretical handle on the issues being discussed – carefully dialoguing with the source material, and understanding the Scriptures themselves – and, at the same time, will apply these issues concretely to an area of the church or community.
