This course offers an introductory exploration of the central theological themes of the Christian tradition (theologies of God/Trinity, creation, the person and work of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the nature and mission of the church, and the reign of God ). Students will be exposed to a diversity of theological perspectives and movements from historical and contemporary social and cultural contexts. They will develop their own theological voices as they reflect on the ways in which the Christian theological tradition can be relevant and responsive to issues and challenges in contemporary life.
