Christians are performers. We are dancers, writers, actors, musicians, and preachers. Christians also perform as teachers, leaders of meetings, and advertisers and evangelists of various sorts. In short, Christians communicate in embodied and deliberate ways within the church and in the world. After critically exploring select performance theories together with biblical and theological wisdom — and a brief look at modes of persuasion in the Reformation era — students will select and focus on a specific area of performance.
