NTC Online: Church History
One of the often-heard objections to faith in Christ is that it is old fashioned or outdated, a relic of the distant past and therefore easily discarded. After all, what could a two thousand year old faith have to say to us in the twenty-first century?
This class seeks to address this question. In short, what could a two thousand year old faith have to say to us? A lot! For those of us who are a part of the Christian Church, our history is not something to be discarded as foreign, or cut-off from our time. No, church history is a recognition that all that the Church is today, has been informed, shaped, and influenced by what has gone before. So, to investigate church history is to dig the depths of who we are, and as we do, it is my hope that we come to a better understanding of what it means to be faithful to Jesus in our own day.
This course is delivered by Dr Joseph Wood, lecturer in Church History.
