Systematic Theology

CGT3521HS  L4101
Offered in Winter 2015  ·  New Course · Waterloo Site

This course focuses on a major theological work by a significant author, and examines the coherence and interrelation of its themes This iteration will consist of a careful and close reading of one of the pivotal volumes of Karl Barth's Church Dogmatics, among the most significant works of theology in the 20th century. Volume II, part 2 is noted for its revolutionary relocation of the doctrine of election in the doctrine of God, for grounding Christian ethics in dogmatics, and for its consistent Christological centre. Within this framework, oriented by careful exegetical work, Barth treats themes such as Trinity, Israel, church, the destiny of the individual, and ethics as the command of God.
