There is a ton one could say about Luther and Calvin, but I believe you can boil down their contribution to “change by orthodoxy.” They weren’t leaders in the purest sense of the word, they were theologians. On account of giving sound theology in times when it was sparse, they changed everything.
Do our times need a fresh encounter with sound theology, or do we believe the right stuff already and fail to live it? Maybe we’re doing just fine?
In the midst of dozens considering themselves “Back to the Bible” movements, how do we distinguish those who are bringing us back to the heart of Jesus, from those who are doing little more than pushing their interpretive particulars?
