  • Compare and contrast Atonement theology with Accompaniment theology.
  • Present insights of feminist and womanist theology as a path to healing violence and racism in our world.

  • Understand the impact of a paradigm shift in theology from atonement theology to accompaniment to theology.
  • Understand that theology is meant for the whole people of God and is a reflection on lived experiences and beliefs throughout the centuries.
