Why Study Church History?

By October 17, 2016December 20th, 2017Women

A few weeks ago, Dr. Glenn Kreider (we both teach at DTS) and I were in Austin talking with Jennie Allen, founder of IF:Gathering, to film segments included in the new study they are offering—Anno Domini or “AD.” AD focuses on the Book of Acts and what followed—the 2,000-year history of the church, the bride of Christ. You can sign up for the free 8-week course.

Below I spend about 30 seconds talking about why I encourage people to study this topic:

The following video lasts about five minutes, and we talk more in depth about the value of understanding our history.  This is the intro to lesson one.

I hope you’ll consider joining in. Click here and scroll down to get started and read the encouraging responses to this video.

    I am curious about this course. I wonder whose history would be told in this narrative.

      Hi, Monet. An important question! This particular study is based in the book of Acts and covers the church for the first few hundred years. So Protestants, Orthodox and Roman Catholics are participating. We are also bringing in examples from the global church, so the work does not just focus on Europe.
