Theology, Injustice and Resistance
How do Christians hold ruling earthly powers to account? To “obey the Holy One more than human authorities”—and to resist—become profound duties when injustice is a tool of government. This course explores three “cases” of governmental injustice: the genocide of Jews by the National Socialist government of Germany; the apartheid regime of South Africa; and the cultural genocide of First Nations in Canada. Through lectures, videos, readings, and extensive discussions, participants will examine and assess governmental injustice, ecclesial and civil resistance, and processes of reconciliation.
