CORE 102 Christian Thought & Life

This course introduces the student to critical thinking regarding the essentials of Christian faith, including the nature of orthodox Christian belief and the practices that Christians have historically engaged in as part of their commitment to the Church of Jesus Christ. The course considers how one uses the authorities of Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience as they form the bases for a Christian worldview. A visit to a variety of worship communities in Chicago is included as a requirement of the course. Prerequisite: COR 101. (Offered every semester.)
