Founded in 1950 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (RSHM), Marymount University in Arlington, Va. is an independent, coeducational Catholic university offering bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in a wide range of disciplines.
I serve as Adjunct Faculty of the School of Arts & Sciences in the Department of Theology & Religious Studies. I presently teach multiple sections of the required undergraduate course in theology entitled “Theological Inquiry.” The course provides an introduction to the discipline of Christian theology by examining the perennial questions of existence and the answers to those questions found in the Christian faith. It presents an overview of the development of Christian theology with an emphasis on the role Christian theology can play in the students’ lives, culture, and world. The issue of the responsibilities of Christianity in a pluralistic world is also addressed, including a review of the similarities and differences between Christianity and the other two major monotheistic world religions – Judaism and Islam.
