Item Description...
This 48-page study guide was printed for a study help for the video series The Christian Story. In this six-part series from tabgha Foundation, Dr. Martin Marty takes an overview of church history and uses it to probe the spiritual pilgrimage of the various eras of the church to our individual and corporate life today. The six programs: 1. "What's Your Story?" was filmed at Dr. Marty's home in Riverside, Illinois, where he tells "the story"" that Christians have in common with one another. 2. The Middle Ages deals with the Catholic Middle Ages and was filmed inside and outside of Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, a Gothic cathedral built in the 1920s on the University of Chicago campus. 3. The Reformation deals with the Protestant Reformation, and the major author and shapers of the Reformation, especially Martin Luther, and with ongoing legacy of dissent. 4. The Church in America deals with the impact that Christianity has played in shaping America. We also see that Christianity in America brought unique and radical dimensions to the Christian story. 5. The Enlightenment deals with challenges to Christianity resulting from the rise of science and rationalism in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. 6. The Church around the World. The sixth video deals with the growth of Christianity internationally to all parts of the globe and the different expressions of Christianity in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Includes 48-page leader's guide with reproducible student worksheets
