This module invites students to explore theological themes of meaning, faith and human existence in selected works of fiction. It encourages students to recognise how the study of theology can enrich their appreciation of literature, while also identifying ways in which novels and other literary texts offer a potent medium in which to explore, interpret and challenge theological ideas.
