Historical Theology

Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.

Jude 1:3, ESV

What you will learn

The faith we hold was “once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3) but Christians have been contending for it in every era.

As heresies and challenges attack the truth, the church has responded by clarifying and carefully defining what we believe. Historical Theology is the study of this chain of events.

We want students to understand and love the richness and beauty of the Reformed faith as it has been developed. We will explore major theologians and developments including Athanasius, Augustine and Anselm as well as the Reformation, the Puritans and recent thinkers like Kuyper, Machen and Lewis.
