When considering the meaning of Christian faith, we often focus on how the individual believes and acts. However, in the New Testament, true faith begins in God’s loving faithfulness towards us. Our faith, then, is a response of trust in God’s mercy.
This course explores the various images of the call to faith presented in each of the Gospels, and in the letters of St. Paul. Such images include seeking right relationship, transforming the way we see the world, abiding in God, and other patterns for the life of discipleship.
