F602 Winter 2019 Great Turning Points of Church History That Still Turn in Us!
Tuesdays, 9:40–11:05, Jan. 22–Feb. 12
Instructor: Larry Packard
We will cover significant turning points in Christian church history from the resurrection to the 21st century that still influence us. There will be a basic text for those who wish to read along and illustrative YouTube interviews with scholars. The class will watch selections from the classic PBS series called The Long Search. Emphasis will be placed on demonstrating how the past was prologue to today’s experiences. Weekly reference sheets will be sent before sessions and class participation is always welcome!

He graduated from Wake Forest University and Virginia Seminary before receiving his doctorate at Princeton. A published author, he learns along with the class by bringing fresh eyes, creative presentations, and humor.
