CH 502 Reformation Church History
The Reformation changed the world – spiritually, socially, even politically. In this course, learners trace the historic development of the Protestant Reformation from its sixteenth century background to its impact on the world and church today. The course examines the lives and teachings of the leading Reformers (Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, and Knox) and traces the Reformation movement in various nations. In addition, students study the rise of the major Protestant Movements – Lutheranism, Calvinism, Anabaptism, and Puritanism – and the Roman Catholic reactions to those movements. The goal of the course is to apply the Reformation battle cries of faith alone, grace alone, and Christ alone to life and ministry.
