Evolution, God and Gaia (THE2152)

30 credits

In this option module you will explore how evolutionary theory developed from the early 19th Century, and what challenges the theory has posed and continues to pose for Christian theology. Key points will include the suffering of non-human creatures, and the nature and vocation of human beings. This will lead to an exploration of human relationship to the planet in the current ecological crisis.

The module has no prerequisites, and is eminently suitable for interdisciplinary pathways.
