Nashotah House Seminary is sponsoring a course in Christian Theological Anthropology, offered at the Church of the Incarnation in Dallas beginning Wednesday, Jan. 30, and continuing through the spring. Open to both clergy and lay people, the course may be audited or taken for credit. The instructor is the Rev. Canon Victor Austin, Theologian in Residence in the Diocese of Dallas, and author of several books.
His syllabus includes readings from Scripture, theologians, and some church documents. “We’ll try to compare and contrast Christian theological anthropology with some philosophical views and contemporary cultural views.”

ST 630 – Christian Theological Anthropology
Overview: We’ll have readings from Scripture, various theologians through history, some church documents with particular attention to Anglicanism; and we’ll try to compare & contrast Christian theological anthropology with some philosophical views and contemporary cultural views. It’s a big topic, of course, but it’s also of immense importance to the church today. I sometimes think that anthropology is the most important theological issue of our time.
Meeting most Wednesdays, with one Sunday evening lecture, starting Jan. 30, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., at Incarnation, 3966 McKinney, Dallas. Continues through May 17.
