COURSE TITLE: Fundamentalism: A Theological-Historical Survey
INSTRUCTOR: Rev. Timothy A. Williams, BA., MA., PhD.
COURSE INVITATION: Beginning in the nineteenth century, unbelieving modernism entered into the church. By the beginning of the twentieth century, the mainline denominations were divided over liberalism. In reaction to this, Fundamentalists maintained historical Christianity and were forced to separate from the mainline denominations in order to preserve the gospel and its basic message.
By the middle of the twentieth century, a new generation of Fundamentalists felt isolated and felt that a new approach was needed. This became the New Evangelicalism of today. This divide between Old Evangelicalism and the New Evangelicalism remains one of the key issues of our day.
I invite you to trace the history of the Fundamentalist movement and to evaluate its stand for the fundamentals of faith.
COURSE TIME: Starting July 13th, 2009; Every Monday Evening for 6 weeks (6:30 to 8:30)
COURSE LOCATION: Heritage Baptist Church 6905 Greenwood Road Woodstock, IL 60098
