Early Christian Mercy to the Secular Culture
Rev. Chad Kendall
Trinity Lutheran Church
This course will be an investigation into the Scriptures, looking particularly at the way the apostles speak of compassion and mercy. Emphasis will be toward Clement of Alexandria's approach to teaching the Christian faith in a Gnostic world. Further, this course will examine scriptural texts exegetically and will consider how, in light of Clement's approach, the Church may communicate the Scriptures and draw people into the Church in our modern-day Gnostic and Postmodern culture.
