Details for Introduction to Theology

Do you have questions about God that you have been unable to answer?  Do you sometimes wonder whether Christian beliefs about things like the Trinity and the divinity of Jesus make any sense?  This unit provides you with the opportunity to explore those beliefs that are foundational to Christianity.  It argues that what we believe about God (our theology) has a practical impact upon our life and ethics and, therefore, provides an overview of Christian faith, and reflects on the ways in which this faith informs our everyday life and calling. The topics addressed range from the doctrine of God, creation and sin, to discussion on the person and work of Christ, and the nature of the coming kingdom of God.
