Wednesday Study Group 

New Study Begins September 11 Please join us for our next series: The History of Christianity II: From the Reformation to the Modern Megachurch Lecturer: Molly Worthen Great Courses video-based study, shared leadership 36 lessons, beginning September 11   As the world’s largest religion, Christianity is enmeshed in the history of the world. Consider the question of the Christian mission: is it about saving souls, or about saving society? Is it about holding the right beliefs, or about doing good works? The answer to these questions over the past 500 years has defined politics and policies, and led to wars and revolutions.  A careful study of this history allows you to:

  • appreciate the complexity of the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Counter-Reformation;
  • understand the myriad Protestant sects that emerged in the 16th and 17th centuries;
  • reflect on the role of the church during the Enlightenment and its relationship to the scientific revolution;
  • gain insight into religion in America, from Mormons and Fundamentalists to Evangelicals and the “Christian right”; and
  • see the challenges of the 21st century and the Global South in a different light.
