The Knowledge of God

AQF: 6/7/8/9 on-campus

Monday Daytime Unit

TH001-612/712/812 + TH206-912

Can we know God? And if so, then how? Who wrote the Bible? Is it a divine book? Or a human book? How reliable and trustworthy is the Bible? Can we rely on it to tell us the truth about all things, or just some things? Does God foreknow the future? All of it, or just some of it? If everything happens according to God's will, why is there still suffering and evil in the world? What exactly does it mean to be created in God's image?

In this unit we’ll explore these questions and many others that are both challenging and immensely relevant to the Christian life. We will particularly focus on the ways God has chosen to make himself known; God's identity as the creator and sustainer of the universe; our identity as those created in God's image; and our fall into sin.
