1 Corinthians: A Conflict Management Perspective (New Testament)

Course number: DEBS1121 • Credit hours: 3 hrs


Distance Education Course: Principles of conflict management from a thematic and topical exploration of First Corinthians.

Course Description: This course will study the key theological concepts presented in the book of 1 Corinthians and introduce the student to the fundamental principles of successfully managing conflict within the Christian community. Themes explored in this course are based on the typical problems in the church at Corinth that precipitated the conflict in the first century. While the “”contestants”” in the struggles in that church have left the scene of this earth, the issues and elements of human conflict remain the same. Paul’s interventions with the church then are as timely today.
