TCH504― Historical Theology Modules
Elective for MDiv or DMin― 2 credits each. Prerequisite― TCH505: Systematic Theology Modules
If you’re a lover of history, this course won’t disappoint you! Fortunately, we have Gregg Allison’s reference volume to guide us.
Most historical theology texts follow Christian beliefs in general chronologically; and while this may be good history, it can make for confusing theology.
Gregg Allison presents the historical development of theology in an arrangement which provides the history of Christian doctrine one theological element at a time― allowing students to visit a tenet’s formulation in the early church, through the Middle Ages, Reformation, and post-Reformation era, and into the modern period. Again, we will not be able to visit every doctrinal tenet in this 778-page volume.
