Creation and Redemption
The first half of the unit explores the theology of creation with attention paid to the contemporary discussion on the relation between science and theology. Apart from the doctrine of creation (and continuing creation), the first half of the unit also includes theological anthropology, sin and evil and the problem of theodicy. The second half of the unit focuses on redemption and Christology. It begins with looking at the relation between the person and work of Christ. Particular attention is given to the doctrine of the incarnation (the two natures of Christ) and the various theories of the atonement. The unit concludes with a discussion of Christ’s descent into hell, his bodily resurrection, his ascension and his presence in the church today.
