Introduction to Christian History

Designation: CHUR 5013

Christians have developed many ways to live out their faith in the world. An examination of the development of doctrine, worship forms, patterns of ministry and organization, and the interaction between culture and the church in different times and places all provide a window into understanding the church in its present context. In this course the student will gain a critical appreciation of Christian tradition both in its relationship to the norm of Scriptures and in its changing diverse regional, cultural, and denominational expressions.
