This one-semester course includes a study of the major worldviews that dominate the societal landscape within the contemporary culture. This study is largely apologetic, although considerable time is given to the history and development of these worldviews to demonstrate environments around which these ideas have emerged. Students will also learn how the church has and will continue to respond to these rather dynamic positions by engaging and studying the various manifestations of these worldviews within the culture through a rather extensive and cumulative project. Seniors are required to complete fifteen hours of community service.
