THEO 757 - Presbyterian Reformed History and Confessions

Credits 3
Focuses on the history of the Presbyterian churches in the context of the Reformed tradition of Christian life, piety, theology and action. Pays particular attention to the confessional tradition of the churches as collected in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Book of Confessions, to the American context as it grew out of the Reformations of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and to the world-wide missionary and ecumenical movements of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Thus from the American Presbyterian experience, the course works back to the European origin and development of the more broadly Reformed movement, and works beyond and forward to world developments and connections.
