THEO 116 - Church in the World

This course will explore the history of the Christian church beginning with the foundations described in the Gospels and the Book of Acts. Students will learn about the crises, personalities, and cultural contexts that shaped the Christian Church in ages past and brought about the current state of denominational plurality and doctrinal differences. Since THEO 203 - Protestant Churches considers the development of the Protestant Churches after the Reformation, this course gives special attention to the past few centuries of the Roman Catholic Church. Additionally, students will learn about the various ecumenical dialogues that have begun in the last several decades in an attempt to restore some of the unity of the early Christian Church.
