History of Christianity and Mission in Palestine

Some time ago I gave a class named ‘History of Christianity and Mission in Palestine’. It is a survey of, well, Christianity and mission in Palestine from the 1st C. through the Middle Ages.

I thought I should put all the lectures on one page:

Lecture 1: What is Contextual Missiology?

Lecture 2: When Christianity became a Religion

Lecture 3: The Content and Method of Jesus’ Mission

Lecture 4: The Roman Empire and Expansion of Christianity

Lecture 5: The Church in the Roman Empire

Lecture 6: Constantine and Helena

Lecture 7: Donatists, Penance, and Penance

Lecture 8: Pilgrimage and the Holy Land

Lecture 9: Monasticism

Lecture 10: Origin of Islam

Lecture 11: ‘The People of the Book’

Lecture 12: Dhimmitude

Lecture 13: Eastern Orthodoxy

Lecture 14: Templars and Crusaders

Lecture 15: Protestants and Mission

I was born in Montana and grew up in Colorado and Puebla (in Mexico). I completed a BA in philosophy at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and then an MA in theology at St Mary's University (also in San Antonio). Later life took me to Jordan where my wife and I studied Arabic, to Israel where I helped found a seminary, and to Scotland for doctoral work, among other places. I live in Madrid now where I teach and minister. I'm highly interested in the interactions of Islam, Christianity and secularism in modern contexts. My main areas of research for my PhD in divinity were religious conversion from Islam to Christianity, contextual theology, and the shari'a's treatment of apostates. I've also published research on global Anglicanism and the history of Anglican mission in the Ottoman Empire. I've had the pleasure of teaching in many places over the years: from Costa Rica to Turkey, and Kenya to Tunisia. I am at-large lecturer and researcher in Muslim-Christian relations at The Christian Institute of Islamic Studies (www.tciis.org), and deacon at the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer in Madrid, Spain.
