Winter 2023 Course Taught by Jason Parker
A survey study designed to give the student a sense of perspective and appreciation of the church from the days of the Reformation to the present time. Primary attention is devoted to the major events, individuals, and issues which have played significant roles in the history of the church. Ages and topics will include (1) the Reformation period (A.D. 1500-1648), (2) the Modern Age (A.D. 1648 to the present), (3) issues like Church Councils, Anabaptism, Catholicism, the Reformation, and the Puritans. The last period includes an exposure to American Christianity and the proliferation of denominations over the past centuries.
