Poets, Prophets, and Skeptics

Generic 1

Course Description: Social norms pull our desires toward consumerism and consumption, and income inequality makes this reality more glaring. Saint Ignatius, however, encouraged the use of discernment to “seek and find God in all things.” This course uses Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises and portions of Scripture, especially Prophets and the Book of Ecclesiastes, to explore some of life’s biggest questions: Why is there evil in the world? Why do bad things happen to good people? What is the meaning of life? Is justice possible? What are the effects of income inequality? Where is God in the midst of our daily lives?

Comments: Senior elective.
