Perhaps no other century in the history of the world so tragically highlights the destructive effects of man’s rebellion against God as does the 20th century. It is a history of conflicting ideologies and idolatries, of crisis and of killing on a horrific scale.
Yet the 20th century, like all history, is considered part of the study of God’s unfolding plan of salvation. Our confidence as Christians is that in the broad sweep of history God’s plan of redemption is being carried out. Students learn that they too can be an instrument in the healing of today’s world.
