Three Results of the Reformation


The global impact of the Protestant Reformation is difficult to overestimate. In today’s Seven Minute Seminary, Dr. Joseph Wood describes three important results from the Protestant movements that re-centered the church on the gospel:

  1. New ways of thinking—the Reformation made Scripture accessible to everyday people.
  2. New ways of interacting—the Reformation enabled challenges to an unfaithful church.
  3. New ways of being—the Reformation celebrated our unity in denominational diversity.
