    Thank you. “The church was ripe for reform”. Indeed. Today as well…. or revival. Me too.

  2. Michael says:

    Amen, my friend…me too.

  3. Jean says:

    Me three!

    What Paige said!

  5. Ixtlan says:

    We have much to thank these early reformers for. An interesting study would be to trace to continuity they had with the Apostolic Fathers ( A.D. 70-150).

  6. Nonnie says:

    If I understand it correctly, the Anglican church (Church of England) believes that they have the continuity of the Apostolic Fathers.

  7. dusty says:

    in agreement with Paige.

  8. Learner says:

    Another great article Michael…the pre-Reformers are often forgotten and overlooked in the history of the church.

  9. Michael says:

    Learner,

    This was my favorite article to write so far…and the least popular so far. 🙂
    It’s fascinating to me that it took 1300 years for something resembling evangelicalism to become a factor in church history.

    I would like to see more church history stuff like this.

  11. I doubt seriously Paul would have read Augustine and said “Yeah that is what I mean” but I have little doubt that Calvin would.

  12. Michael says:

    Erk,

    We’ll do a ton of this once we get to the sixteenth century and beyond.

  13. Michael says:

    BD,

    I’m sure there were areas were Augustine was in error…but most of Western church history is either looking forward or back to his thought.

    “It’s fascinating to me that it took 1300 years for something resembling evangelicalism to become a factor in church history.”

    Of course, we like to think the 1st century church looked a lot like our particular tradition 🙂
