Presents: Being Human – Being Christian

Sunday, January 14 – March 18, 2018
10:15 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. in Room 123 PC

The question of what it means to be human confronts all of us throughout our lives.  It is a topic that is endlessly engaging and fascinating.  Many themes and questions are raised once this quest is undertaken. 

Some contend that humanity can be reduced to biological or chemical or political or economic categories.  Others see human nature as completely transcending history, culture, gender and existing as a soul above nature. 

This course will strive to find a balance between the relativists and the absolutists.  Physical, cultural and historical categories will be in dialogue with philosophical and theological ones to allow us to understand in a fuller way what it means to be human and especially what it means to be human from a Christian perspective.
