Course Description

HD720 Idolatry

The bible is deeply concerned about idolatry. A case could be made that it is the primary form of sin. But what is idolatry? How is idolatry related to images? Was idolatry only an issue in ancient Israel? A Brief Statement of Faith says Christians are called to “unmask the idolatries of church and culture.” What are the idols with which we struggle today—
both within the church and within society? Course requirements: seminar presentation and term paper due one month after completion of course.
