Join Dr. Jim Eckman as he challenges us to think critically about important issues that affect our everyday lives.

The classes offered at Steadfast Omaha this Fall include: (see below)
Tuesdays at 12-1pm, September 3 - December 10
This final class on American Civilization surveys the period from World War II to the present. Special emphasis is given to the effects of World War II on American civilization, the significant spiritual revival of the 1950s, and the radical worldview shift to Postmodernism in America that began with the 1960s. Additional emphasis is given to the Civil Rights movement, how America dealt with the threat of communism during the Cold War, the re-definition of the US presidency and the growing pluralism of American Civilization. The role and response of biblical Christianity to all of the developments is a central theme of the class.
12-1pm on Thursdays, September 5 - December 12
In Matthew 16:18 Jesus Christ declared “I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Following Dr. Eckman’s book on Church History, the class will focus on the Ancient Church (Pentecost to about AD 600) and part of the Medieval Church (AD 600-1500). Emphasis is given to the rapid spread of the church, the development of church leadership, the development of theological orthodoxy and an explanation of the institutionalized church, which came to be known as Roman Catholicism.
