Description

Being Christian and being human are sometimes seen (or felt) to be at odds. So what does it mean to be human? How can we be our true selves? Do the roots of our authenticity lie within or - mysteriously - without? This course uses the doctrine of the Trinity as a springboard to understand issues of personhood, de-personalizing views of sin and salvation, and the modern desire for/addiction to uniqueness. Lectures include:

  • Prolegomena: The History of Thinking of the "Self" from Plato
  • A Tale of Two Augustinian Monks: Luther and Descartes
  • The Double Knowledge
  • The Trinity as the Ground of Our Being
  • The Jesus as the "True Human"
  • The Challenge of Becoming Persons
  • "The Pursuit of Personal" - by James Houston
  • Questions and Answers with James Houston
