This course will introduce students to a range of models of intentional Christian community from the Early Church, Monasticism, the Anabaptists, Moravians, and contemporary Christian communities such as Catholic Covenant Communities, L'Arche, Sojourners, House Churches, and the Base Ecclesial Communities. It will explore the way these communities have related to the church and the way they have sought to impact society. It will provide perspectives for evaluation and determining general applicability and will identify ways in which Christian communities are developed and maintained. Lectures include:
