The Great Courses of the Bible: The History of Christianity II from the Reformation to the Modern Megachurch
Location: Room 204
The History of Christianity II From the Reformation to the Modern Megachurch. Presented on DVD by Dr. Molly Worthem from U of NC at Chapel Hill.
Today, churches are shrinking in much of Europe and North America. The faith's center of gravity has shifted to the Global South. By 2050, about three-quarters of the world's Christians will live in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, where both democratic reformers and authoritarian s
trongmen have claimed the power of Christ on their side, and believers call on the Holy Spirit to battle demons and witches who haunt everyday life.
In this course, we'll explore the complex journey of the Christian faith from the turn of the 16th century to our present day, following the radical transformations as well as the continuities.
Cultivating Relationships: "A Study in James - Volume Two" from Alistair Begg
Location: Room 201/203
Written to scattered believers facing a variety of troubles, the Epistle of James takes as its focus a universally relevant question: How are God’s people to live in God’s world? This side of heaven, trials and tribulations crowd into our lives, confronting us with failure and tears, doubts and disappointments, cries and groanings. In response, James offers us practical help, with an eye toward not becoming Christians so much as behaving as those who have been redeemed “by the word of truth.”

"Renewed: Finding Hope When You Don't Like Your Story" from Heather Dixon (beginning January 7)
Location: Room 202
In the Book of Ruth, Naomi was forced to chart a new path even as she mourned the loss of her husband and two sons. It was a hard story…a story she didn’t choose or like. Using Naomi’s story, Renewed, a four-week woman’s Bible study, teaches women to flourish through a willingness to trust that God can transform them and trade their heartache for hope.
