Teaching organisation

This unit involves 150 hours of focused learning. The total includes formally structured learning activities such as lectures, tutorials, online learning, video-conferencing or supervision. The remaining hours typically involve reading, research, and the preparation of tasks for assessment.

Unit rationale, description and aim

This unit explores fundamental issues that require critical attention when doing theology. The unit examines the nature of divine revelation and Christian faith, and that faith's normative expression in Scripture and tradition. It considers theology's necessary focus on the diverse ways contemporary Christians understand and live out their faith in different contexts, as well as theology's relationship with the church's teaching authority (the magisterium). The unit also examines theology's relationship to other disciplines such as philosophy and sociology, and the diversity of theological methods employed by theologians today.
