In this course you’ll learn to think theologically through a careful consideration of Christian beliefs about Jesus Christ.
You’ll discover that theology is not a list of facts about what you believe, but a whole way of thinking about God and the world. This is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the heart of your faith, and will give you a deeper understanding and appreciation of how the way we think about Jesus affects the way we live our lives today.
You will be introduced to a variety of Christian spiritual traditions and approaches to prayer, alongside a study of the voluntary responses of the individual believer to the saving grace of God in Christ which in turn results in a conscious relationship with God through the indwelling Holy Spirit and is demonstrated in the community of believers and to the world. The course also provides the opportunity for personal spiritual engagement with God through prayer exercises as well as academic learning.
