Taking the University to Church: The Role of Theology in the Christian University Curriculum

Douglas Harink


The task of theology in the Christian university curriculum is to argue that the appropriate social and intellectual context of Christian scholarship is the Church. The beliefs and particularly the social practices (the sacraments of baptism and eucharist) of the Church are constitutive for the formation of the Christian intellect. Douglas Harink believes that theologians must open up reflection on these beliefs and practices in such a way that colleagues in other disciplines might explore their heuristic potential. Mr. Harink is Assistant Professor of Theology at The King's University College.
