Introduction to Theological Writing
STH TF 805
Because theology frequently makes use of multiple modes of discourse, rhetoric, and communication the goal of this class will be to exercise maximal control of written expression, primarily through the practice of essay writing. With close attention to grammar, syntax, diction, rhetoric and argument, students will work to develop both their prose style and their approach to theological writing. Students enrolled in this course will study, discuss, and evaluate a wide range of prose styles peculiar to theological discourse. The course will also include three writing seminars by Professor Kathe Pfisterer Darr.
