In this must-have course, you will encounter Christian anthropology: the branch of theology that articulates the meaning of human existence in light of Christ's revelation. With expert presenter Sr. Sara Fairbanks as your guide, you will examine the multi-faceted Christian perspective on humanity's place in the evolving universe. As you ask the deep questions of ultimate meaning, you will explore our origin, purpose, goal, and future destiny.
In twelve illuminating lectures, you will gain fresh insights into your relationship with God as you delve into different facets of the human experience in historical and cultural contexts. You will explore what science tells us about God's relationship with creation. You will also discover what contemporary theologians say about humanity's place in the unfolding universe and the mystery of human suffering.
Next, you will ponder new developments in the Christian understanding of sin and grace. You will explore how God chooses to draw near to humanity in healing love and forgiveness. As you will discover, human flourishing is only realized in our relationship with God. Finally, you will explore eschatology through an evolutionary lens as the final fulfillment of all creation in communion with the Triune God.
