In this course, we will study historical, philosophical, and theological sources to become familiar with Christianity and learn the basic grammar of the Christian faith. We will explore how Christians have told the story of who God is, what God has done, what God is doing, and what God will do. In addition to examining the development of Christian doctrine, we will also think about the relationship between philosophy and theology, between reason and faith. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and public outcries for social justice, we will also consider Christian responses to theodicy: how do we reconcile God’s goodness and providence with the existence of evil and suffering?
