Peace Theology and Social Justice

This course will explore a variety of perspectives on peace theology by drawing on examples and lessons from the Scriptures and Christian history. We will explore themes such as pacifism, nonviolence, ‘just’ peacemaking, just war, necessary or lesser evil, love of enemies, mimetic theory, reconciliation, and inner peace, among others. Although different perspectives will be explored, this course will promote peace as an appropriate theological component and lens, while acknowledging that it can be incorporated in a variety of ways.
