The Christian Faith in Modern Context

Unit code: CT8002L


In the unit students examine and reflect on the basic teachings of the Christian faith from a Lutheran theological perspective. Broadly speaking, this process involves students in investigating the meaning and significance of the theology linked to each of the three articles of the Apostles Creed. This is done with reference to the contemporary context in which students do theology, with particular attention being given to confessing faith in Christ in the face of modern science, environmental concerns, religious pluralism and other challenges. Students also examine and reflect on the key processes and sources for doing theology today. The theological focus in the unit is Lutheran with a Christological emphasis, and using an approach which invites students to consider other theological perspectives in the light of a Lutheran position.
