The Mission Impulse in Modern Christianity
June 6-10, 2016 Faith and Culture
This course is now open to a limited number of Lifelong Learning participants.
Christianity has grown greatly since 1800, not only in terms of its geographical reach, but also in the scope of its impact on society. New definitions of mission efforts within the wider society (social and benevolent missions) have pushed the boundaries of the Christian presence in the world. This course examines this mission impulse and its impact, which involves both the growth of Christianity in the North Atlantic world, as well as the establishment and reform of Christianity in areas of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. It also explores the lives of individual women and men who have heard this calling and have taken it into their lives.
