While the Church of the Brethren has long held the New Testament as its focus, the Hebrew Bible, also called the Old Testament, is the basis of much of the New Testament’s faith. In this course, we will work through the various books of the Hebrew Bible and look at their ancient context. We will attempt to better understand how these books interact and how they influence the New Testament texts. We will also look at a number of modern theories about these texts and how these theories influence how these books are read today.

This course provides a brief overview of the history of Christianity from the Reformation to the Cold War – 1460 to 1960.  Topics of study include the Magisterial Reformation, the Radical Reformation, Roman Catholic reform, Protestant Orthodoxy, Pietism and the Evangelical Awakening, the impact of Enlightenment rationalism, missionary expansion, Protestant liberalism and fundamentalism, the ecumenical movement, and Christianity in developing countries
