A few weeks ago during the G3 Conference, I sat down with Steven Lawson and Tim Challies to talk about the Reformation. Next year will mark the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. As we consider this important and historic mark, we should likewise examine the Reformation and ask some important questions. As we sat down together, I placed some questions on the table. As you can see below, I’ve also provided a list of questions and the mark during the discussion so that you can go directly to a specific topic in the discussion.
List of Questions and Time Markers:
- Was the idea of Sola Scriptura the main issue of the Reformation and is that the main issue of our present day? – [0:00]
- Is the Reformation over? – [5:30]
- Who is the greatest theologian of the Reformation? – [7:44]
- Who is the greatest preacher of the Reformation? – [10:10]
- There’s a movement among many younger preachers who seem to be avoiding the title preacher. Would Calvin have been avoiding the title of preacher? – [13:00]
