Who am I? How do I relate to others? And how do I know? Postmodern answers to these central questions continue to accentuate social fragmentation and micro-cultural development that lead to identity politics rooted in relativism and issues of power. Using socio-psychological research & theories together with socio-theological reflection, this course addresses five types of identity that shape our social worlds, influences our ability to connect and communicate, and either speeds or impedes the flow of gospel-centered communication. Students discuss these central questions from within a biblical framework and construct a self-identity profile.
