Centuries of Change versus the Unchanging Word

This is 13 lesson (44 pages) workbook is intended to help students understand God's plan for His people as they work and worship together in local churches. After an overview of what New Testament churches were intended to be, the material looks at the development of Roman Catholicism and the Protestant Reformation. The Restoration Movement is studied with an emphasis on understanding Bible authority and the issues of instrumental music and the missionary society. There are also three lessons dealing with the institutional and "social gospel" questions that arose in the 1950s and 1960s. 

While the material helps students understand the historical perspective of various questions and issues that have arisen through the centuries, it is a biblical study that stresses doing things God's way and seeks to avoid anything that would make the Restoration Movement or any other "movement" our authority. 

While the 13 lessons can be studied in one quarter, the material could easily be adapted for a 26 lesson study. A "teacher's manual" is not currently available, but it may be in the future.
