Christianity in Culture
The course seeks to lay biblical, theological and historical foundations for Christian understandings of culture, while also facilitating practical exploration of specific spheres of Christian involvement in culture. It will also aid students in understanding the ongoing relationship between Christianity and culture, and how cultural awareness along with critical skills for critiquing culture from a Christian perspective enhances ministry and leadership effectiveness both in the church and within society at large.

Much of Bruce’s scholarly expertise has to do with aspects of Canadian history, culture, and Christianity. As a professor, he is passionate about helping students to think critically about their faith experience without becoming cynical, to historicize their church tradition without discrediting it, and to recognize the symbiotic relationships between cultural forces, human actions, and the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church.
