A Protestant Reformation at Its 500th Birthday: Time to Clean House
This issue focuses on 95 theses Martin Luther might have written for “The New Reformation” 500 years later. It is based on extensive research among churches in the U.S. and reflects many of the ideas provided in the book, published in September 2017, Who Broke My Church? 7 Proven Strategies for Renewal and Revival.
When Luther posted his 95 theses, they were meant to begin a discussion about what Scripture says in contrast to the model of Christianity reflected by the Roman Catholic Church at that time.
This presentation of 95 theses reflects the challenges of churches today, based on the Kingdom culture of Jesus reflected in the New Testament. It points to the many areas of drift that are not in harmony with Scripture and that cause local churches to be ineffective – resulting in their decline and reducing their impact among non-Christians.
