Key developments in 20th century theology are explored through an engagement with relevant figures and their primary texts. This exploration is done against the backdrop of the political, social and cultural realities that were taking place at that time. Students will demonstrate how theological proposals from the 20th century can be engaged with in relation to current personal and social challenges.
