Saving salvation: does salvation make any sense to us today?

Salvation is a basic tenet of the Christian doctrine. Yet, it is an ambiguous tenet. What does salvation exactly mean?  Is it an ongoing reality or a one-off act? ‘What’ exactly are we being saved from? ‘Who’ is saving? Towards ‘what’? Can we be saved by being moral? This session will attempt to address these and similar questions by considering a set of philosophical and theological propositions and exploring various works of art. teaches Moral Imagination, Art and Spiritual Formation. Her subject area is ethics and her key specialisms are: moral development, virtue ethics, the relationship between morality and theistic spirituality, theological and global ethics.

She writes about herself - "I see theological education as an interactive exchange between different sources of Wisdom, practical spheres of life and each other. Theology, if it is done well, is formative and transformative. It can help us grow morally and spiritually as well as expand the well-being of our local and global world”
