Christian theology is a human word which attempts to express the mystery of the dynamic interface between what is given by God and what is received by the human subject. It is a word anchored in culture and society and thus always in need of interpretation. This course unit will consider Christian faith in both its dimensions, as subjective experience and as a body of beliefs. It will explore the relationship between faith, revelation and theology.

This course unit is designed to provide students with an understanding of the biblical basis and the historical and modern formulations of the person and work of Jesus Christ, and to explore these in the light of contemporary Christian life and thought.
