Time Line is an album by American Christian rock musician Kerry Livgren, released in 1984. It features his newly formed band, AD.


After Kerry left his previous band, Kansas, in 1983, he and his newly formed crew began production for Livgren's second solo album. Time Line was made for CBS Records and was recorded with material created by the crew. While recording, Kerry and his new crew all shared the same interest in Christianity and all the members had come together to form AD by the end of the session. Due to a complication in the label release, Time Line was unable to receive much attention compared to some of Livgren's past works with Kansas.


Allmusic gave the album a negative score of one and a half stars out of five. The album was said to be "blatantly stale" throughout its duration, lacking the creativity that Seeds of Change provided.
