God is the source of all joy, hope, and peace. Now, you are invited on a powerful exploration of the mystery of God.

From the beginning of time, God has remained constant, but our understanding of the Holy has evolved. In this 12-lecture course, you will journey from the beginning of human history to our own multifaceted era. You will explore how early humans understood the Divine, and you will learn how to engage in interreligious dialogue today.

Under the guidance of renowned theology professor Sr. Carla Mae Streeter, O.P., you will gain a firm understanding of Trinitarian theology. Then, you will look at the origins of our beliefs, exploring revelation and how early humans encountered God. From there, you will look at the ways people talked about God during Jesus’ time and in the early Church. You will also explore the different ways the Eastern Orthodox and Western Catholic Church use language about God.

Finally, you will explore contemporary issues of talking about God. How do you talk about God to those who are non-Christian or non-reli

“As a teacher and author Sr Carla Mae’s mystical sensibility and unbridled imagination makes her vision of the Christian story consistently fresh, invigorating, bold and faithful.” – Fr. David Caron, O.P., President of Aquinas Institute

    Exceptionally insightful. Addresses many issues that non-believers raise. Thank you Sr. Carla and Now You Know for making this available. I am ordering a second copy to give to niece and her husband.

    Clear, enthusiastic, insightful presentation that paints in very effective language the evolution of human understanding of the Divine.

    Excellent overview of concepts of God through history and meeting challenges of talking about God today. Presentation on ways of looking at Trinity were useful in teaching. Loved idea of Word as Big Bang
