The Theology at Carroll guide is tailored for CC Theology classes; i.e. emphasis is placed on Catholic theology, with an eye to assignments Carroll students may be given and resources they are expected to be aware of.
You will probably be required to write a biblical exegesis for one of your Carroll Theology classes. This guide will point you toward resources to help you complete your Theology coursework.
Exegesis (from the Greek 'to lead out') is a critical explanation or interpretation of a text, especially a religious text. Your exegesis will require close examination of a chapter, book, or idea from the bible. You will read various interpretations (from a bible commentary) of the possible meaning of your scripture. You will use a bible dictionary (under the "books" tab of this guide) to help deepen your understanding of a word or term in your biblical chapter or verse. You may be required to make side-by-side comparisons to the same scripture in different biblical translations.
The following books will be valuable resources for helping understand what your assignment involves, and how you might best proceed.
Belief series are electronic books and can be accessed from outside the library and off-campus, providing you are IP recognized. Use the VMWare Client.
