History

Preparing for the future by studying the past

Through the history program at Trinity, students take an in-depth look at how culture has been transformed by history. Students learn to read, write, think, and speak with an understanding of what has happened in the past, and our call to transform culture, working toward a future of justice and shalom.

Faculty Focus

David Brodnax, Sr.

Professor of History

If you step into a class taught by David Brodnax, Sr., you learn very quickly that God and history are inseparable. “At Trinity, I can more fully discuss the key role that religion has played in human history, including not only the positive impact that it has had on the world, but also the ways that some people have misused God’s Word to harm the world.”
