TH500—Christian Theology 1

View outline (PDF)   Instructor(s): Rev. Dr. Richard Topping

The purpose of this course is to further critical understanding and appropriation of major Christian doctrines in loving engagement with God and the world in the context of the contemporary church. It treats principally central themes of Christian doctrinal reflection (e.g., revelation, scripture, Trinity, creation, sin, Christ, reconciliation, Holy Spirit, church and hope) as well as contemporary critiques and reformulations of the faith in the light of the ordered and sanctified components of Christian theological expression (Scripture, tradition, experience and reason).

This course is available via Zoom for off-site students

Note:  TH500 students – please note the summer reading to complete prior to the first class in September
