April 26 – June 25, 2021, Wednesdays, 9:00-11:30am PT (2 credits | TCE 545)

Taught by Dr. Chelle Stearns, this class will explore the concept of beauty. This exploration will be shaped by a theology of the cross (which encompasses the whole of the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus) that not only leads us to a Christian understanding of beauty, but to an understanding that beauty, in order to be true beauty, must have the power to identify, confront, and redeem that which is most ugly–even death itself.
