‘What is the nature of God?’ ‘How should we live our lives?’ ‘What is the point of prayer?’ ‘Who is Jesus Christ?’ And ‘how should we do theology? 

This course investigates classic responses to some of the most challenging theological questions through a tour of the life and works of some great theologians. Despite their differences and disagreements, these great theologians all share a deep conviction that God is a dynamic, living reality to be wrestled with in the midst of human history. 

Through a guided study of key texts in Christian theology, students will be challenged to consider how we might make sense of faith, God and society in the contemporary world. 

Join us over 5 weeks to explore: 

1. Augustine of Hippo and Julian of Norwich on God
2. Teresa of Avila and John Calvin on prayer
3. Karl Barth and Mary Radford Reuther on Jesus
4. Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Marcella Althaus-Reid on grace
5. James Cone and Delores Williams on liberation.

This course can be taken as part of the Certificate in Theology or Certificate Plus. Full essay information will be provided once the course has started. Please note you can enjoy the course without doing an essay for SACT.
