This Theology and Ethics course will be taught by Ryan Hurd, and will run from September 26th through December 10th. The syllabus is available here.
God is with us, and holy among us. This course will consider these two topics of presence and holiness, and what we mean when we speak about them in relation to God. We will not only give some understanding of these things in God, but also use presence and holiness as examples of the mode in which theology is done more broadly. We will also consider something of the development of these things in church tradition, as well as more recent explanations thereof.
