3 cr.

(Formerly T/RS 214 and T/RS 228Z)   (Prerequisites: T/RS 121 , T/RS 122 )

This course is designed to help students attend to and interpret the narratives of popular culture from the perspective of Christian faith.  We will discuss Jesus’ use of parables, engage the theological tradition of “finding God in all things,” and analyze a variety of artistic productions (movies, television and music) that represent dominant themes of contemporary culture.
