What sort of person are you trying to be? How does your Christian faith influence your goals?
Rather than a list of commandments, this course examines a fundamental element of moral experience: the formation of a person's character. After clarifying the meaning and significance of character as reflected upon in the Christian theological tradition, the course addresses the topics of moral freedom, human sinfulness, and the nature of conversion. Feature film clips are used to provide occasions to discuss various themes emphasized in the readings.
