Christian Anthropology (ThS 514)


Prerequisite Courses

Course Memo

Christian Anthropology The underlying truth is that Christian anthropology is the locus of all Christian theology. This course will examine the Christian understanding of creation, especially the understanding of the human person as created in the image of God; it will focus on the concepts of "person" and "nature" within Christianity; it will look at the human experience of alienation, sin, the theology of original sin, and the fall; it will examine the human person as graced by God's loving indwelling presence, with particular emphasis on the traditional understanding of grace, along with some contemporary insights. Prerequisite: ThS 513. Spring. UTD: 10/5/05 ET
