This course is a reflection in faith on the realities of Christian doctrine. Under the general heading of "salvation," we will explore four major areas of Christian doctrine: last things (eschatology), the work of Christ and our appropriation of it (soteriology), the Holy Spirit (pneumatology), and the church (ecclesiology). We will do so with a focus on salvation as "participation," which will highlight for us God's desire to be present with us in personal love and grace. As we embark on this study in the light of Scripture and Tradition, we will seek to develop our insight in these areas of doctrine for the sake of our participation in the life of God and so for service in the kingdom of God. Lectures include:

  • Course Introduction / Participation in the Eschaton
  • Participation in Hope / Spe Salvi (Benedict XVI) Discussion
  • Participation of the Body / On the Soul and the Resurrection (Gregory of Nyssa) Discussion
  • Participation of Creation / Reformed Dogmatics (Bavnick) Discussion
  • Participation in Our Head: Recapitulation / The Scandal of the Incarnation (Irenaeus) Discussion
  • Participation in Righteousness: Justification of Sinners / The Soul's Journey into God (Bonaventure) Discussion
  • Problems with Participation in the Spirit / Institutes (Calvin) Discussion
  • Participation in the Spirit in History / On the Holy Spirit (Basil) Discussion
  • Participation both in Creation and the Church / Dominum et vivicantem (John Paul II) Discussion
  • Participation in Unity and Holiness / "Letter" (Sadolet) and "Reply" (Calvin) Discussion
  • Participation in Catholicity and Apostolicity / Lumen Gentium (Vatican II) Discussion
  • Participation through Word and Sacrament / Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry Discussion
