  • The Word-Focused Ministry of Martin Luther

    from Steven Lawson Jul 16, 2016 Category: Articles

    The centerpiece of Luther's ministry was his forthright preaching in the pulpit. He believed the preaching of the Word must hold the place of preeminence in the church. "The pulpit," Luther asserted, "is the throne for the Word of God."

McGrath comments, "For Luther, the Bible was central to the life and thought of the church, as it was to the personal devotion of the individual Christian."

  • The Origin of Calvinism

    from John Piper Jul 09, 2016 Category: Articles

    Of course, like every other man besides Jesus Christ, John Calvin was imperfect. His renown is not owing to infallibility but to his relentless allegiance to the Scriptures as the Word of God in a day when the Bible had been almost swallowed up by church tradition. He was born in July 1509, in Noyon, France, and was educated at the best universities in law, theology, and classics. At the age of twenty-one, he was dramatically converted from tradition-centered medieval Catholicism to radical, biblical, evangelical faith in Christ and His Word. Keep Reading
