Dr. Maxie Burch, professor of religious studies at Arizona State University, former Dean of Christian Studies at Grand Canyon University, enthusiastically, if not maniacally, teaches a worthwhile series on Early Church History from Christianity’s emergence from Judaism through Augustine.

I can also recommend the History of Christianity series from Dr. Frank James III of Reformed Theological Seminary which is catalogued at Itunes U. http://itunes.rts.edu/
That latter is full of fascinating details and more disciplined in presentation than the other series. But the other is endearing in its mad professor-ness. The two series really complement each other. Together they challenged some of my assumptions about Early Christian history. They also are helping me make sense of where the Anglicans are coming from with some of their presuppositions that are so different from the presuppositions I’m used to from my background.
I like to listen to these lectures while I iron or mop floors or cook.
