Important note regarding when courses are offered

Term notations of Pre-term, Fall, Interterm, Spring, Post-term, or Summer mean that the course is offered during that term every year. When a term notation is followed by odd or even, then the course is offered during that term only in odd or even years, respectively.

Courses that do not have a term notation are not offered on a set rotation.

The number of semester credit hours which a course carries is listed in parentheses following the course title.

BB 411 Church History I (2) Prereq.: HI 101, 102, and junior or senior. Students will learn a survey of the New Testament Church from its birth up to the Reformation. Attention is also given to an examination of the underlying texts of the English Bible, the history of the translation of the English Bible, and the great Christians whom God has used to give us His Word in the English language. This course may be taken as a history elective by history teaching field (minimum grade—“C-”) or minor, in which case it would not count as a Bible Background elective. Fall.

The course also identifies major movements that have influenced twentieth century church history: Pentecostalism, Liberalism, Neo-orthodoxy, Fundamentalism, and New Evangelicalism. Each movement is examined in light of Scripture. This course may be taken as a history elective by history teaching field (minimum grade—“C-”) or minor, in which case it would not count as a Bible Background elective. Spring.
