This 5-week course will explore the lives and thought of the early church on such key topics as sexuality, slavery, spiritual formation, cosmic worldview and relations between Christians and the government. The ancient wisdom of early Christianity is sure to provide helpful insights as we grapple to understand how the Christian faith supplanted the mores, spirituality and basic cosmology of the Roman world. This study of the first Christians is sure to aid us in formulating answers to the perplexing questions of our own day as well.
