George Whitefield College is running its annual ‘Summer School of Biblical Christianity’ from 23 Jan to 1 Feb 2008 at their campus in Muizenberg, Cape Town. They’re offering courses on Biblical Theology, Church Response to Contemporary Issues, New Testament Greek, Old Testament Hebrew, Advanced Exegesis and Post-Graduate Research. I’ll be attending the Post-Graduate Research course.
What was really interesting to me is that Mark Norman will be down from Pretoria to teach 6 sessions on understanding postmodernism entitled ‘iPod therefore I Am‘. Here’s his schedule:
Part 1: Understanding Postmodernism – The differences between ‘Premodern’, ‘Modern’ and ‘Postmodern’ societies.
Part 2: Postmodernism and the Problem of Truth – A Christian critique of postmodern views of knowledge and truth.
Part 3: Postmodernism, Terrorism and Fundamentalism – The new global war and what it means for the church.
Part 4: Postmodernism and African Thought – How post-colonial African thought relates to postmodernism and its relevance for the church.
Part 5: Postmodernism and the Use of Language – A study of postmodern approaches to language, with special relevance to Jacques Derrida.
Part 6: Postmodernism and the Stories We Live In – Are you living in the Christian story?
Mark’s talks will take place in the mornings of each day prior to the other Summer School classes.
