Our faith in Jesus as the Christ who is the revealer of the Trinitarian God is the basis of our understanding of the meaning of human existence. The study of Christian protology is understanding of the Church regarding the act of Creation by God of the “visible and invisible”, the origin of the world, and the special place of humankind in the plan of God. This course deals with the fundamental questions surrounding the idea of creation, the mystery of humankind’s original state, original sin. It concludes with discussion of the relation between Christian conceptions of origins and modern evolutionary theory.
