The Reformation changed the world spiritually, socially, and politically. In this course, learners trace the historic development of the Protestant Reformation from its 16th-century background to its impact on the world and the 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.

I took this course to learn about the Reformation. But, in particular, to learn and try to understand the development of Christianity. That is, to try and understand where Christianity is today. This course helped me to do this by the history discussions and major players in the Reformation. Also, the authors and their works mentioned along the way were also very helpful.Steven
