REL 270 (Summer 2013) Section 12060

The Official Course Description:

The nature and content of the Christian tradition developed over time, with overview of the New Testament, major historical trends and figures, major Christian ideas and practices, and survey of denominations. Prerequisites: None.

(I wrote that.)

Christianity is an incredibly broad topic. In fact, it is too broad a topic even to introduce it properly. So you are going to "choose your own adventure." You can pursue this course in any of four ways. You make the choice. But the four tracks cannot be combined, and once you set out on one track you cannot come back. The overall requirements are the same; only the content of the material and your papers varies.

 

In a nutshell: You will take four 15-question exams based on the readings for one of four particular tracks, write two one-page papers, and attend two very distinct Christian worship services.
