GNS 210 - History and Practices of the Ancient Church
The history of the Church is rife with revelations of the sovereignty of God, the heroism and villainy of humankind, and the wisdom gleaned from two millennia of life in the Spirit. This course is a survey of the history of the early Christian community (approximately 30AD – 750 AD) with an emphasis on the eastern church. It will help the student to understand the heritage of Christian faith and how to integrate its most fruitful thought and practices into the present. It will emphasize the theology and spiritual lives of men and women of God who defied the convention of their times to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to a world suffering under the burden of darkness.
