Histories, Theologies and Practices of Christianity

Emily Click and Daniel McKanan


This course offers a historical, theological, and practice-based introduction to Christianity that is accessible to students of diverse religious backgrounds. We will explore key episodes in Christian history and central themes of Christian theology, consistently highlighting the diversities of culture, ideology, gender, and practice that have characterized Christianity throughout its history. We will use integrative case studies as well as readings from the disciplines of church history, systematic theology, and practical theology to discover the many insights that emerge at the intersections of these disciplines. Note: Course has additional hour to be arranged.
