SPI 518 Secular Spirituality: Post-Biblical Religion In A Post-Modern World
Faculty: Michael Brock, PhD, Psy.D. (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course is designed for the ministry professional interested in the rise of what is commonly called “secular spirituality,” that is, a spiritual sensibility devoid of religious overtones or attachments. The rise of secularism has spawned an interest in spirituality separate from institutional religion and defines itself in terms of the experience of awe, wonder, and mystery in the absence of a belief in transcendent reality. This course explores the increasing popularity of this experiential concept in the secular world and its implications for traditional religion.
