“The Great War” | Live Class for Adults with Tom Garfield$225.00
In this ten-week, online course (Thursdays, 4:00-5:00 pm, Feb 28-May 2) we will:
1. Read and discuss All Quiet On the Western Front (by Erich Maria Remarque). This is considered THE book on World War I, a war most people don’t know much about, but its importance was phenomenal. The book is written from the German side, but it resonates with and reflects the experience of soldiers from all sides.
2. Discuss the causes, unique aspects, and results of this war, particularly the involvement of the United States, which was very controversial, even at the time. It altered the history, culture, and political trajectory of the United States for the rest of the 20th century, at a minimum.
3. Consider historical events, arguments, personalities, and facts from both sides that few people actually know. Why was it the first “world war?” Why did Wilson call it the ‘war to end all wars’ and necessary to ‘make the world safe for democracy?’
4. Examine what biblical principles and applications can and should be part of understanding this war that cost at least 10,000,000 lives, and lead to its horrible, but inevitable sequel 20 years later.
5. Meet online once-a-week for an hour. The only ‘homework’ will be to read the assigned portion of the book and be ready to plunge into lively discussion.
Participants will enjoy interacting from the comfort of their homes.

Astronomy 2019 – Spring Semester/ month for 6 months
Why should Christians study astronomy? What is the relationship between the Bible and outer space (or, as the Medievals would put it, the heavens)? What can the sun, moon, planets, and stars tell us about God? About Man? About our proper place in this universe?
In this course, students will spend a year learning about the heavens. The course begins with the history of astronomy, focusing primarily on the uniquely humble, God-fearing view of the universe that the Medievals cultivated. The course then shifts into astronomy from the Earth’s surface, which includes the motion of the sun, moon, stars, and planets, the phases of the moon, mapping the moon, particular stars and constellations, eclipses, and more. The course ends with a host of fun and surprising facts about the various astronomical objects in the universe, tying together all the information presented throughout the term into a distinctly Christian worldview.

Christendom: Defense of the Faith

Students will read about the military exploits of the Eastern Roman Empire under the emperor Justinian as chronicled by Procopius, the last great historian of the Roman world. Learn how the development of monasticism preserved learning and culture after the fall of the Roman Empire, contrary to Enlightenment assumptions.

Christendom: The Medieval Mind
Christendom: The Medieval Mind begins by guiding students through the basics of Thomas Aquinas' Compendium, introducing students to the medieval mindset which greatly influenced later theologians and philosophers. With this foundation, students embark on a journey through Dante's conception of Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise in The Divine Comedy, exploring medieval concepts of guilt, atonement, beauty, and the cosmos. Meet many classic characters from the Greeks to Dante's present day as Dante uses his allegory to explore human nature, as well as the politics of his day.Select options
Christendom: The Reformation
Christendom: The Reformation: Post Tenebras Lux, introduces students to the great minds of the Reformation: John Calvin, Martin Luther, Thomas Cranmer, and Erasmus. But a study of this tumultuous period of history would be sorely lacking without a thorough understanding of the historical setting of the Reformation. Wesley Callihan and Dr. Chris Schlect team up to lay a solid foundation for understanding the origins and struggles of the Reformation, as well as its theology and influence. Students will read part of Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion, as well as Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and Spenser’s Faerie Queene.Select options
