Christianity in History from 1550 (CH302)

Australian College of Theology Unit Foundational Unit

2019 Semester 2 Tuesday Evening Unit

**SPECIAL REDUCED AUDIT RATE ON THIS UNIT**
We can only properly make sense of our present if we understand our past. Our numerous Protestant denominations only make sense if we understand the Reformation of the 16th century. Whether we identify ourselves as modern or post modern, we are indebted to the Enlightenment of the 18th century. Our ability to understand the American Presidential race depends in part on how we well we have grasped the rise of fundamentalism in the 19th century...

Pauline Theology and Romans (Greek) (NT435/635)

Australian College of Theology Unit Pre/co-requisite: NT302/502, LA004A/B

2019 Semester 2 Wednesday Evening Unit

The apostle Paul was one of the most zealous evangelists and clearest thinkers in the early church. What we know about him comes from the Acts of the Apostles and from the letters that make up a large part of our New Testament. Our world is fast becoming as pagan as it was in Paul’s time. With individual Christians and churches exhibiting many of the problems that he addressed, his letters are of crucial importance to the modern church. They enable us to respond to those issues in a godly and courageous way, and remain faithful to Christ and his gospel in our own age...
