Description: Through select reading of classical and contemporary texts, this course acquaints students with the discipline of theology focusing on Prolegomena (issues on faith and reason) and Theology Proper (Doctrine of God). This course utilizes Theology Proper as a means for exploring the theme of God and Creation, that is, God’s relationship to the cosmos, for study and reflection on models of moral agency in the value and care of the Earth. Special attention is given to constructions of Christian theism amid various philosophical, cosmological, social, and cultural challenges to beliefs on the being and attributes of God, the doctrine of creation, theology of nature, doctrine of incarnation, and the future of humanity in the universe.
