Content

Christian presence is articulated in conversation with human existence. This unit will draw upon theological perspectives that are generated from the interface of Christian testimony and contemporary life, such as meaning, hope, responsibility, ethics and freedom. These perspectives in turn give substance to the character of Christian presence within human existence as an ever-contemporary challenge.
