“Why a Reformation Was Necessary Then… and Now
by Jefrey D. Breshears
I returned a week ago from our Areopagus-sponsored Reformation History Tour. As anticipated, it was an inspiring experience as we visited many of the key sites associated with this momentous period in Christian history – Wittenberg, Worms, Geneva, Zurich, Canterbury, Oxford and Cambridge universities, Edinburgh and St. Andrews, and many others where committed Christians worked so passionately and fearlessly to restore their vision of New Testament Christianity despite great opposition from the established church of their day.
Being there, it not only expanded and enriched my historical consciousness of this transformative era but further emphasized just how informed, how equipped, and how engaged we need to be regarding the great challenges facing us currently in America.
