CHIS600 History of Religion in America
Professor: John Reeve, PhD
Date: November 10-14, 2013
Location: Christian Record Services(CRS), Lincoln, Nebraska
- The student will renew an overview of the history of the early Christian church including a basic familiarization of several major theological, ecclesiastical and social themes. Emphasis will be placed on gaining the ability to research a given Scripture passage as interpreted by the early Christians. Themes of particular interest to Seventh-day Adventists will be explored (Sabbath/Sunday, creation, immortality, etc.), as well as themes which can challenge an Adventist self-understanding (asceticism, liturgy, persecution, etc.).
- The student may also gain an appreciation of the tall shoulders on which we stand today as we interpret Scripture, do theology and practice our Christianity through living and worship.
- The student will also learn to evaluate the traditions of the Christian Church as to their validity and value.
