The Course in Brief This course is an introduction to theology. No prior understanding of or experience with theology, religion, or Christianity is necessary. The course will focus on the concept of God; God’s revelation to humanity through Natural Law; God’s special revelation to humanity as discovered in the Holy Bible; God’s desire for a relationship with humanity; and God’s participation with humanity in the Great Drama which is life. The first third of the course will discuss Revelation and the Scriptures. The second third of the course will discuss the history of Christianity. The final third of the course will discuss basic themes and understandings of Christianity. At the completion of core theology studies (of which this course is one of two) the student will be able to: 1. Describe theologically the basic content of the Catholic faith in relation to other Christian and religious traditions as well as other world views. 2. Interpret theological texts and frameworks in their historical contexts. 3. Articulate implications of Christian faith for growth in holiness and the promotion of justice in the contemporary world.

Course Dynamics and Policies E-mail availability: All students in these sections must have an active e-mail account for the communication of pertinent information between class sessions. This will be included in a private, mass-mailing distribution list on the Marquette D2L system. All mass mailings will be issued “blind carbon copy” (i.e. only the student’s e-mail address will appear on the copy) to preserve the privacy of the students. E-mail addresses (except those which appear in the Marquette directory) will not be distributed without express student permission. Students are responsible for the contents of all e-mail communications from the professor to the students via the D2L system. Accommodations:
