New short course in theology

The Faculty of Theology and Philosophy is delighted to announce the launch of our new online short course in theology this month.

In collaboration with colleagues from the Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry (IRCI), we are delivering a series of four weekly sessions commencing on Wednesday 11 November 2020.

The series will be held online. It is free to participate, and all ACU staff are warmly invited to join us.

Reading for Renewal: Revelation, Revolution and the Reception of the Bible

It has long been recognised that Biblical texts have changed over time, in different cultures, and for different communities. Knowing this fact is one thing, understanding why is entirely another. Over four weeks, you will explore:

  • the processes of meaning-making that inspired both the development of and divergence within the Bible
  • the different environments and emotions, experiences and expectations that compelled change
  • how the past influences the present, but also how hopes for the future can change us all.
