T7234
The Self-Revealing God

This unit builds on the knowledge and skills learned in the introductory unit in theology. It prepares for more specialised study at higher levels through a study of the nature, attributes and creative work of the Triune God as this is made known to us through his self-revelation. It begins with theological methodology and then focuses on the nature and attributes of God as self-revealing, triune, creating. It addresses the issues of providence and the problem of evil.
