RS 558 Overview
This course will view the Christian Church in its historical manifestations from the apostolic period to the present. The goal will be to explore the authentic identity, values and practices that the People of God, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, have assumed through the centuries. Questions to be posed: how does the Church meet the challenges of cultural and social diversity? To what extent can one arrive at an ecumenical understanding of the Church amid various Christian traditions that have arisen through the centuries? What are the implications of any conclusions about the Church for the pastoral life of the community?
