Theology at Hillsdale College


The English word theology is rooted in the Greek words for God (theos) and reason or speech (logos). The gift of speech or reason, given by God to man, enables us to think about God and to worship Him. One of the chief aims of the liberal arts and their study at Hillsdale College is to understand what kind of being man is, as well as his purpose, which in turn makes it possible to begin to understand man’s relationship to God.
