Description

This series examines the threats posed by modernity and post-modernity for a Christian understanding of personhood. The course attempts to say what it means to explain that human beings, male and female, are created by God in the image of God, in the light of contemporary scientific understanding of human persons, and in the light of contemporary culture generally. The listener will gain a clearer sense of what a biblical understanding of persons means in today's world, how such an understanding is under attack, and how it might be defended. Lectures include:

  • Imago Dei
  • Wisdom, Meaning, and Human Science
  • Values in Psychotherapy
  • Spirituality: Authentic and Counterfeit
  • Living Together: Competition and Envy
  • Taking Relational Christianity Seriously
  • Children, Hospitality, and the Church
  • Christian Attitudes and Politics
  • Social Transformation and Prophetic Spirituality
