The primary aim of this course is for its participants to enrich each one's own sense of having a Christian identity within the heritage of the communion of saints over two millennia. It will review major cultural changes as continually challenging the Church about its Christian identity. Such a broad historical perspective will enable contemporary Christians to appreciate how fluid, precarious, and confusing the provisionality of 'Christian Identity' has become today.
