This is a legacy edition of this course that should not be used if taking the course for credit. In History of Christianity I, Dr. James explains the beginnings of the Christian Church up through the time of the Protestant Reformation, and brings this history to life with practical application that we can use even today. Covering the development of the Christian church's doctrine, faith, and practice from its founding at Pentecost to the time of the Protestant Reformation, you will learn about the persecution of the early church, the formation of the canon, the major church councils, St. Augustine, the Monastic movement, the Crusades, Mysticism, Scholasticism, John Wycliffe, and the Renaissance.

Customer Reviews

Exceeded my expectations

This is a suburb lecture series. I can't wait to get to part 2. Dr James is very enthusiastic about history and that enthusiam is contagious. It was fancinating to hear the developments of the early church and how the church struggled to understand exactly who Jesus is. Dr. James also gives some relavent personel glimpses of key thinkers of early Christianity. One area I would have liked to hear more about is the history of the Eastern church especially diferences in doctrine. Also, I think some information on areas out side of the Meditarrean area would have been interesting. For example, the Nestorians first introduced Christianity to China around 600 AD. However this was an overall excellent survey of Christian history. 32 lectures and that is only part 1. Very good.

We should teach written history not slam the Arminians and praise the Calvinists

Most of the teachings on Moravians and Arminians is very different than what I have read in the past... It is done in such a pro-Calvin way that it becomes so bias to the point of hate.

High Quality

Both this and the second part are high quality and enjoyable. James seems to know his stuff, too.
