Description

Luther and Calvin, the great reformers of the sixteenth century, are remembered for their writings and theological debates, but do we think of them as great missionaries? Can we learn from them for mission work today?

The Reformation had a defining and far–reaching impact on the western world and beyond. It shaped the development of Europe over the next 500 years. It not only touched on church life and key doctrinal issues but had implications in terms of ethics, the birth of liberal democracy, education, the arts, science, the economy and much more.

This all evolved as part of Calvin’s and Luther’s evangelistic vision. With such a legacy, this vision is worth your attention.

Endorsements

In a brief compass, Lindsay Brown helpfully encapsulates the nature of the missionary impetus of the Reformation. It has been often maintained that Reformers like Luther and Calvin were not interested in missions. Nothing could be further from the truth. Despite their spatial limitations and geographical context, their labours – fuelled by a conviction of the pressing need to re–evangelize Europe – were distinctly missional. Brown also considers the way in which Luther and Calvin also sought to bring the truth of Christianity to all spheres of human life, a helpful reminder that Christ lays claim to the totality of life.
