What do Christians believe? Why do they believe it? Can it (despite everything!) possibly be true? And if so, what difference does it make? Taking an 'insider's view' of Christian belief, this course asks what it means to think and to speak Christianly--about God, Jesus, creation, religion, human community and responsibility, death, life and other little things.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
|Campus||Old Aberdeen||Sustained Study||No|
The course will introduce students to the essential elements of historic Christian belief as summarised in the ancient creeds of the church. It will introduce students to the nature and practice of theological reflection by examining the central tenets of Christian doctrine in their historical context and contemporary iterations. Critical reflection upon the doctrines of God, creation, the person and work of Christ, the Spirit, and the nature and mission of the church will be central concerns.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
Tutorial assignments will be timed to provide early written feedback during the first third of the course. Interaction with tutorial leaders will afford regular opportunities for students to gauge their understanding of material throughout the course.
