What does it mean to think theologically?

This 10-week course will explore what this means, and what sense can be made of religious language, introducing some basic issues on the margins of theology and the philosophy of religion: for example, how God can be known and how God can act in the world. Topics covered will include the person of Jesus, incarnation and resurrection, the Holy Spirit, the Christian idea of God as Trinity, creation, sin and salvation, the Church and Christian living. The course is intended to be introductory and to prepare the way for further study and reflection. The course is also ecumenical in spirit: participants will be invited to consider not only the central understandings held in common by most Christians, but also to reflect on the areas of differing emphasis and diversity within the Christian tradition.
