CREATION, SIN, ESCHATOLOGY (3 units)
Jose Mario Francisco, SJ
TTh 10:35-11:50 am
The value of ourselves and our world lies in that all are created, redeemed and destined by the Triune God in Jesus Christ. This theological reality does not diminish but enhances the characteristics and processes of the natural world as well as the relative autonomy of human freedom and history. Evil then, whether natural, moral or structural, is not a threat to this origin and destiny, but an indication of our need for transformation in Christ. The course draws from Scripture and Church documents as well as from cultural and scientific resources.
This will be conducted seminar style and will require more work for the students.
Maximum: 25 students. Exception with teacher’s approval.
