Reading American Protestantism uses bestselling religious books as a lens through which to think about theological similarities and differences in American Protestantism, the ways in which religious ideas are packaged for popular consumption, and the ways in which different academic disciplines (sociology, history, religious studies, theology, ethics, etc.) can be used to study religious phenomena. The course is designed to build core skills necessary to be a successful student at Iliff, such as basic thesis writing using graduate-level research skills.

This course offers a survey of the Book of Acts, including its relationship to the Gospel of Luke. We will survey major interpretive issues and strategies for reading Acts, including postcolonial and empire perspectives, geographical and spatial frames, and historiographical and literary analyses. The course will begin with a brief study of Luke's gospel before moving on to Acts, and will attend to questions of whether and how these two books are connected to each other.
