The Christian thought minor sequence explores the nature and meaning of Christian faith in Jesus Christ as articulated in the Christian creeds, and celebrated through the way in which Christians understand and live out their faith in different contexts. You’ll engage with a contextual and critical examination of beliefs central to the Christian tradition: the significance of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection, the implications of faith in Christ for belief in God, and understandings of creation, human personhood, sin, salvation, the church, and the eschaton. You’ll consider these beliefs from varying theological perspectives, and in light of historical and cultural questions. Topics include the trinity, Christology, ecclesiology, theological anthropology, eschatology, and Christian spirituality.
