The Two Cities: The Rise of Christendom

Andrew Willard Jones argues that all history is salvation history—the story of God's dramatic relationship of creating and redeeming humanity. His first course, "The Rise of Christendom", begins with Adam in the Garden and moves through the Mesopotamian dynasties and the Roman Empire, to the slow but thorough conversion of Europe into Christendom. What did a Christian society look like and how did it come about? Study these questions with Dr. Jones in his first video course.


Featuring over 6 hours of dynamic lectures from Andrew Willard Jones, professor at Franciscan University of Steubenville and author of Before Church and State.
