There was a Reformation, you remember.

After a week away from the blog, it’s gratifying to come back to it with some much to write about! Later today we’ll take up the next installment of Wright Wednesdays and there’s another “issue” we’re contemplating, too! But first, let’s go to Bishop Martyn Minns of the newly formed Anglican Church in North America, […]

Reformation Now!

Ever since Paul addressed the philosophers in Athens, there has been but a small number of those who embrace the gospel.  The church has nevertheless grown throughout the world precisely through such witness.

Five for Friday is so named because we’ll ask five questions of pastors, missionaries, theologians, and regular Joes/Joans who are working for Reformation and post their answers on Fridays.

The Archbishop, the Reformation, and the Theology of the Cross

Our friends over at Mockingbird NYC posted a fantastic quote from Archbishop Rowan Williams’ book, The Wound of Knowledge, in which he draws a direct link between the Reformation’s rejection of the Roman Catholic Church’s claims to infallible authority and Luther’s Theology of the Cross. The Reformation put a question of the utmost gravity to […]

Wright Wednesdays: part 2
