HOM/TH6/701 – Augustine the Pastor

View outline (PDF)   Instructor(s): Rev. Dr. Jason Byassee

Five hundred years ago, Europe tore itself apart over faith in a conflagration we remember as the Reformation. All sides appealed to St. Augustine, the great early fifth century north African church father. His thought is still the cornerstone of all western theology—if you’re a Christian who is not Orthodox, your theology traces its roots to Augustine, even (or especially) if you insist otherwise. What did he actually teach? And how do we make sense of it in light of this significant anniversary?

This course represents a joint project between St. Mark’s College/Corpus Christi and the Vancouver School of Theology to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.  It is co-taught with Dr. Paul Burns of St. Mark’s/Corpus Christi
