Simpson University for Seniors Offering Two Classes

For Immediate Release


Simpson University for Seniors

REDDING, Calif. - Simpson University for Seniors will offer two courses on consecutive weeks in late April and May so that learners may attend both.

Here I Stand! – The Protestant Reformation: An overview of the massive spiritual reform movement that swept Europe in the 16th century, drove the great colonial rivalries of the 17th-19th centuries, and has profoundly impacted the whole world into the 21st century. Special focus will be placed on leading reformers such as Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, John Knox and John Wyclif; as well as auxiliary reform movements such as the English Reformation and Anabaptism. Presented by Don Claspill, Simpson University professor.

The Transition from Judaism to Christianity in the New Testament: This course will look at the shift from a Judaism-centered belief system to a Jesus-centered belief system in the time before Jesus' death and immediately following. It will examine the cultural, spiritual, and political culture clash therein. Moreover, it will underscore how revolutionary the idea of "righteousness through faith" truly was and is. Presented by Dawn Bulchandani, Simpson University instructor.
