Towards a theology of death in light of evolutionary theory
MetadataShow full item record
There is a clear discrepancy between the biological and the theological understanding of death. It is precisely this area that the main title of this dissertation proposes to investigate. This naturally leads to the formulation of a main research question: How should a theology of death be formulated in light of the challenge from the evolution theory? In order to work towards answering this main research question, I have isolated three main areas of special interest. I have formulated three subordinate research questions connected to an understanding of death in relation to creation, anthropology, and finally to God's plan of salvation.
