Description
This class picks up where History of Christianity 2 left as it explores the development and growth of Reformed doctrine in England, and then moves to examine the Puritan colonies and the beginnings of American Presbyterianism in the 17th century. This course also investigates the beginnings and distinctions of the ARP, OPC, PCA, and EPC denominations. Emphasis will be placed on major events, movements, controversies, institutions and personalities that have helped shape the contemporary church's faith. In telling the uniquely American story of Presbyterianism, the course will address the changing culture of the United States and its impact on Presbyterians.
