Welcome to this research guide for The Church: From the Reformation through the 20th Century. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.

This course is an introductory study of the history of Christianity from the Reformation in the sixteenth century to the present day. It describes renewal periods, organizational matters, theological issues, and geographical expansion during this period. It also gives special attention to the lives and contributions of significant Christian preachers, leaders, and theologians. It concludes with an assessment of current trends such as the charismatic renewal and the nonwestern missionary outreach. The lessons are structured to enable students to apply insights gained from the past to contemporary situations in the church.
