Teaching The Book Of Revelation To Millennials And Gen Y, Kayle De Waal Dec 2019

Teaching The Book Of Revelation To Millennials And Gen Y, Kayle De Waal

Theology Book Chapters

This chapter examines the challenge of interpreting the symbolism and the use of antecedent literature in the book of Revelation as a “discussion starter” that focuses on Millennial and Gen Y assumptions about the book. The chapter presents a Christo-centric methodology that builds the faith of students. The methodology emerges from the text itself and provides a responsible approach to the text that demonstrates its historical, theological, literary and contextual nuances. The symbol of the Lamb serves as a pedagogical tool that points to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and is woven into the narrative landscape amidst the ...

The Grand Narrative Worldview: A Narrative Inquiry Into The Impact Of Biblical Metanarrative Teaching In Liberty University’S School Of Divinity Global Studies Program, Chesed Anne Dent

Global Studies uses the power of story through the Grand Narrative of Scripture to teach students academic content, equip them as messengers of God’s Story, and help them assess and understand their own narratives ...

The Kairos retreat is popular among upperclassmen at Jesuit high schools across the nation. Kairos, or “God’s Time,” is a religious retreat grounded in Christian incarnational theology and the overall theology of the retreat is love in action, and its participants are challenged to “live the fourth” day, which becomes the never-ending day. Even though there has been a trend across the nation in the first decade of the 21st century within Jesuit high schools to move the retreat to the junior level, there is no empirical research examining the spiritual effects on the individual student of moving the ...
