What Does Church History Have to Do with Modern Ministry?

church history ministry

“What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.” (Eccl 1:9)

This refrain from the beginning of Ecclesiastes is music to a historian’s ears. The cliché “those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it” may ring true for those who ignore the past. The modern church often falls into the trap of chronological snobbery, assuming that current intellectual pursuits are inherently superior to the past. This causes pastors and church-goers alike to forego thousands of years of wisdom in favor of the newest scholarship.

In his new book, Church History for Modern Ministry, Pastor Dayton Hartman argues that church history is not old news, but a vital component of a healthy ministry. The previous struggles and conflicts of the church can help us refine and reform our doctrine and worship today. In this practical and engaging book, Hartman shows us that a deep understanding of our past can help us address contemporary issues facing the church.

Understand the Biblical Writers on Their Own Terms

discourse analysis

The Greek text has much to offer those teaching and preaching, but gleaning these insights can be a frustrating experience. Too often, people expect that word studies or assigning a syntactic label to a construction is as good as it gets. But the new Discourse Analysis Bundle from Mobile Ed opens the door for those with an introductory knowledge of Greek to go deeper than they ever thought possible. In these courses, you’ll be introduced to significant discourse devices that the biblical writers used to prioritize and structure their message. You’ll learn how things like forward-pointing devices were used to help the original audience know that something important was about to be said.
