'The Faith that is believed' descriptively, as the objective content of the Christian life, needs to be balanced by 'the Faith that believes' existentially. Both by historical and contemporary reflections on how Christians make sense of their living faith, this series aims to explore and enhance the personal growth of the Christian. Obstacles as well as aids are examined, to promote personal rather than individualistic tendencies in christian life and ministry. Lectures include:

  • Making Sense of Our Faith
  • Philosophy as a Way of Life
  • The Church Fathers/Augustine
  • Cistercian and Medieval Mysticism
  • Soren Kierkegaard
  • The Personalist Quest
  • The Therepeutic Quest
  • Personhood: Human and Divine
  • Prayer and Worship
