ANT3400EN - Anthropology for Christian Witness

Course description

Building on a theological understanding of the relationship between the gospel and culture, this course investigates the ways in which cultural differences impact the missional leader, the gospel message, and the missional community from an anthropological lens. Students examine incarnational mission, cultural assumptions, critical contextualization, and inculturation in light of anthropological theories such as diffusionism, functionalism, structuralism, cultural materialism, and symbolic anthropology.
