In this episode, I'm joined by Reformation scholar and historian Dr. Brad Gregory to talk about the Reformation and its unintended consequences – a fantastic discussion!
We discuss what Christianity was like during the Middle Ages, leading up to the Reformation, what the Reformers intended with their actions and, maybe most importantly, what the lasting consequences have been of the Protestant Reformation for the unity of Christianity and the secularization of Western society.
For more from Dr. Gregory check out his fantastic works The Unintended Reformation: How a Religious Revolution Secularized Society and Rebel in the Ranks: Martin Luther, the Reformation, and the Conflicts that Continue to Shape Our World Today.
