critical tools
Explanation:
AS IN (Internet):
These same critical tools will then enable individuals to develop the capacity to think that is characteristic of competent citizens.

This course provides students with foundational literary and theological concepts, basic critical tools, and library resources for beginning to undertake their own readings and interpretations of the texts of the New Testament. We will explore the historical, socio-cultural, theological and literary dimensions of these texts, and consider reading strategies for today.

Thanks again and have a good day
