Interpreting the Lessons of the Reformation for Today


Date: 2018-05-09
Run Time: 00:12:18
Host: Dr. Gregory R. Perry
Guest: Dr. Richard L. Pratt, Jr.
From the Series: True and Lasting Reform

Program Notes

Dr. Pratt discusses the holistic challenge of the Reformers to the cultural structures in Europe, and how the gospel of the kingdom still challenges our loyalties and sources of security in today's world. For example, he discusses Luther's theses which challenged how church leaders oppressed the poor by selling indulgences. Moreover, Dr. Pratt reflects on the growth of the church in China, and the ways future leaders there are evaluated not only on the basis of their theological knowledge but on the basis of their suffering service for Christ and his kingdom.
