BB 411 Church History I (2) Offered Fall. 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.

BB 412 Church History II (2) Offered Spring. Prereq.: HI 101, 102, and junior or senior. Students will learn a survey of the New Testament Church from the Reformation to the present. Attention is given to the lives of the Reformers and the lives of great Christians used by God in the great revivals and missions works from the 1700s to the 1900s. 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.
