CH 5060 American Church History

Mark Chapman, PhD.

This course covers the history of Christianity in colonial America and the United States from the sixteenth century to present.  Its purpose is to familiarize students with the major historical figures, groups, movements, and trends in American Christianity. Reading assignments and lectures will provide students with a concrete understanding of the broad scope of American church history, but a special emphasis will be placed throughout the semester on the evangelical movement.  Students will be encouraged to reflect upon the significance of the historical development of evangelicalism, and on its place in the larger stream of both American and Christian history.
