The Triune God and Revelation

This postgraduate 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 includes theological methodology, the self-revealing God, the holy Trinity, the nature and attributes of God, God the creator, and God the governor: providence and the problem of evil.
