The twentieth century witnessed the rise and fall of empires, as well as the vast growth of the church through world missions. In many ways, the twentieth century contains the best and worst of human history. In this lecture series, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey considers the development of the church in the modern world, even as world wars, social revolutions, and doctrinal controversies threatened its expansion. Though the church met many challenges in this century, Christ continued to build His church as His gospel spread throughout the world.
In 1966, TIME magazine ran a cover with the provocative question: “Is God dead?” Amazingly, the question was being raised, not by atheists, but by theologians in the “death-of-God” movement. The death-of-God movement is merely one of several contemporary theological novelties that are the natural outworking of nineteenth-century liberalism. In this series of lectures, Dr. R.C. Sproul takes a close look at several twentieth century theological movements, including the death-of-God, examining both their roots and their fruits.
