This unit is a study of Christian reflection on what it means to be human in relation to God, Grace, and who and what makes up our humanity. The role of different and pluralist cultures on what it means to be human will be examined and how these subjectivities are embodied in the world through human arrangements such as family, race, work and the limitations of sickness and disability, ageing and death.
