DR1547: INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY (2019-2020)

Last modified: 25 Sep 2019 09:58


Course Overview

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.
