Christian anthropology is not simply a Christian understanding of human existence but also of Christian living. The nature of Christian life is disclosed to us in the life of Jesus and shared with us through the bestowal of the gift of the Spirit through Grace. The study of Christian anthropology would not be complete without the treatise on grace and justification. The topics in this course concern primarily with the question of grace; and the process and effects of justification. Other related topics, namely, the remission of sins, internal renewal, divine election, the indwelling of the Spirit, merits and eternal life would also be considered. This course concludes with the explication of Christian existence as living the life of grace in Faith, Hope and Charity.
