This unit explores key questions in the doctrine of salvation and the Christian understanding of the end times: From what are we saved? How are we saved? Who is saved? What happens after our earthly life? Where do we go? Drawing upon scriptural and theological metaphors for salvation and the end times, the unit undertakes a critical evaluation of classical and modern approaches to the issues in Christian soteriology and eschatology.
