Anabaptist Short Course: Understanding Anabaptist Approaches to Scripture: What’s Different and Why?
In the 16th century, Anabaptists approached Scripture in ways that were both similar to and different from their fellow Catholics and other Protestants. This course will seek to understand those similarities and differences in light of today. Which of those approaches might we repudiate today, or nuance, or embrace whole-heartedly? What historical and theological developments in the centuries since the 16th have influenced today’s Mennonites more profoundly than did the Reformation?
This online six week non-credit short course will be taught by Dr. David Cramer, AMBS Sessional Faculty and Managing Editor of the Institute of Mennonite Studies and Dr. Susannah Larry, AMBS Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies.
