The final project will be both theoretical and practical, addressing the link between the gospel and the church and/or culture. It will demonstrate a strong theoretical understanding of the issues being discussed, carefully dialoguing with the source material, and understanding the Scriptures themselves. At the same time, it will apply these issues concretely to an area of the church or community.
