LTR 5622 Life and Thought of Sun Myung and Hak Ja Han Moon
This course presents the life and thought of Rev. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon from the perspective that they were (and are) carrying out the mission of the Messiah as they understand it, to wit: The Messiah’s responsibility is to stand as the new, biblical Adam and Eve, the embodiment of God and True Parents of humankind. Rev. Moon derived from this a set of objectives for himself and his wife, for their family, their religious community and other affiliated organizations, their nation, the world and the spirit world.
The student will grasp the essence of their complex path, starting with core projects addressing marriage and family life, women’s activism, and youth and students, then integrating business ventures, environmental, interfaith and political advocacy, media activities, education, work with academia and cultural entities, sports, spiritual healing and more.
Students will carry out historical research on a specific historical question of their choice. 3 credits
SCR 5151 World Scriptures and World Peace
World Scriptures and World Peace gives primary attention to the Bible and the Qur’an, the sacred scriptures of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Among the world’s religions, these “Abrahamic faiths” are at the center of religious conflict today. Through studying their scriptures, we can find meeting-points for peace and interfaith harmony. Then we will conclude by tasting the scriptures of Buddhism and Confucianism.
Each of these scriptures weaves a rich tapestry of teachings that speak to the varieties of human experiences with God and the ways that faith addresses the human condition. They speak to the ways of God’s providence, the pain of undeserved suffering, and the hope for redemption. There are both hard texts that cause friction and golden texts that inspire believers to strive for peace.
With ample coverage of the Bible, this course can serve as a general introduction for students whose ministries are in the Christian world. The course also spends three weeks on the Qur’an, to elucidate the basics of Islam.
Two different perspectives are intertwined in this course: First, we can look at a scripture as it is understood by the faith community that holds it sacred. Second, we can look at it from the standpoint of one's own faith. These perspectives complement each other, as understanding the traditions and beliefs of others opens new avenues and helps us avoid pitfalls when sharing one's understanding of truth with them. 3 credits
