Understanding the Protestant Reformation: Precursors and Legacy (CH111) is presented by a team of respected Christian scholars: Jennifer Powell McNutt, Roger E. Olson, Frank A. James III, Gerald L. Bray, Chris Armstrong, and Frederick Cardoza. These scholars are well published in church history, theology, and Christian education, and their combined expertise facilitates students gaining clear insight into the Reformation. This course covers the precursors to the Protestant Reformation, the prominent Reformers Martin Luther and John Calvin, and the Reformation’s impact on the reading of Scripture, the church, and Christian discipleship.
