TH 501 The Christian Confession


The course is designed for students who have no previous training in theology. It is an introduction to the discipline of theology, its nature, necessity, methodology, and contours. The course emphasis is on the content of theology rather than the practice of theology per se. The course concentrates on the classical loci of Christian theology surveyed under the following categories: (1) Revelation; (2) God; (3) Creation, Fall, and Redemption; and (4) the Church and Its Future. Throughout the course, particular attention is paid to the relevance of theology to Christian praxis.
