In this course students will examine the character of God, the creation, and the nature of humanity. The students will be introduced to pertinent biblical texts and themes, theological terms, key figures, and the importance of culture and history in framing various debates.  As the first in three courses in systematic theology, particular attention will be given to theological method and the nature of theology as biblical reasoning within God’s economy of grace.

This course examines the history of science, technology, and the philosophy of science from Aristotle to the present. The narrative is selected especially as it relates directly or indirectly to the history of the church and theology and reflects/influences broader cultural movements. The focus is on the history and philosophy of science and does not require any prior scientific course work
