THEO 552 God and Nature


The objective of this course is to examine ways in which Christians have understood God in relation to the created order. We will focus specifically on the last five hundred years: how our conception of nature has shifted and, with it, our ways of conceiving of God. We will juxtapose this with modern cosmological “stories” and the challenges they present theologically. A field component will be an aspect of this course: students should be prepared to explore the Domain both in and out of class time. May be taken pass/fail by notifying Registrar after you have registered.
