THC3320 Theology of Media & Communication

Course Overview

Educational Level: Upper undergraduate, Bachelor
Credit Hours: 3 Credits
Instructor: Dr. Matthew Farlow

Course Description:

How has God spoken in word, deed, and through a variety of media, including nature, natural objects, and word pictures? The student will examine Scriptural and historical examples, various theories of communication, and practical missional concerns to develop a theology for telling the Good News in a variety of media.

How This Course Benefits Students:

The missional student must communicate if he is, in fact, going to be missional. This course will enable him to understand the Biblical, theoretical, and practical concerns for sound cross-cultural communication of the gospel.

Why This Course Is Important:

Although all agree that media and communication is essential for the missional task, not all are agreed on the validity of all media. This course will help the student make sure that the medium dos not become the message, but will always be in service to the message.
