This module will address a variety of themes within Christian theology. Each theme will be approached with a view to its biblical roots and historical development, its critical reception and restatement in the modern period, and its significance for contemporary theological reflection. Themes covered will include: The problem of 'God' in the modern world; who is Jesus Christ and what difference does it make?; Trinity, Spirit and community; Diagnosis and cure - models for salvation; Beginnings and endings - the origin and destiny of the world. Through consideration of these themes students will also be introduced to several key figures in the history of theology.
