Fall 2015 Course


October 19, 2015 at 9:30 PM - 11:30 PM EDT


105 Ives Hall

Taught by Chesterton House Senior Scholar Dr. Ryan O’Dowd


Is it possible to make sense of the countless translations, interpretations, and debates about the meaning of the Bible today?  This course assumes that we can by demonstrating (1) that the questions we face in interpretation today have been around for thousands of years and (2) that by drawing upon the great wisdom of our ancestors and our contemporaries we can make our way safely through new and uncharted waters. During the course of the semester students will be introduced to some of the major interpretive questions in reading the Bible (language, history, genre, worldview, etc.) and be apply their learning to reading various types of biblical texts both inside and outside of class.
