The College Theology Society holds its 59th annual convention from May 30 – June 2, 2013 at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. The theme is Teaching Theology and Handing on the Faith: Challenges and Convergences.
The conference will examine questions highly pertinent to our field, such as:
- Should theologians be understood as evangelists handing on the faith in the sense of pointing to Christian theology as a vital intellectual and spiritual tradition that helps shed light on the human person, the world, and the divine?
- How is it possible to teach Catholic theology among religiously diverse student populations given our needed sensitivities to ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue?
- How can the teaching of theology increase religious literacy and practice given the declines in young adult affiliation with the Catholic faith?
- What is the relationship between a theologian’s responsibilities to the church in handing on the faith and a theologian’s responsibilities to the academy in terms of professional competence and academic rigor?
