October 31 of this year marks the 500th anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation, a revolutionary movement that has shaped world history ever since. Why did the Reformation happen? What were the key issues? How did the religious changes introduced by Protestantism influence the Western worldview? What were some of the positive and negative results of the Reformation?
With the kids back in school, perhaps there’s no better time for you and your listeners to take advantage of some new resources and study guides available from The Colson Center to help deepen your understanding about the Reformation . . .
- Beginning October 3rd, the Colson Center will launch a four-week online course on “The Causes and Consequences of The Reformation” taught by Reformation historian, Dr. Glenn Sunshine who will go through the events leading up to the Reformation, summarize the theological distinctives of Protestant and Catholic theology, and discuss the many ways the Reformation shaped Western Civilization. Spots are filling up quickly so we encourage you to sign up today!
- Then, the much-anticipated biography of Martin Luther by Eric Metaxas releases very soon: Martin Luther: The Man Who Rediscovered God and Changed the World. (Be watching for our review here soon!)
The Church is confused about doctrine and morality, Islam threatens to overwhelm Europe, and new technology and scientific discoveries are reshaping economics. Sound familiar? That was the world of 1517, when Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses and ignited a revolution. The same descriptions could be said of the world today.
More information about these resources is available here.
Thank you for your partnership with BreakPoint and The Colson Center as together, we help believers to articulate and live out a genuinely Christian worldview.
