Church History I
A study of church history from the Early Church fathers through the Great Divide (8th century). As we use Roger Olson's book on church history we will see a common thread: a concern for salvation--God's redemptive activity in forgiving and transforming sinful human beings.
Taught by Garrick Bailey and Todd Young
