October 27-29 2017 Louisville, Kentucky
Was it the goal of the Reformation to splinter the church into thousands of denominations? Should we be happy with the present condition of the fragmented church, expecting it to continue, or should we strive to see the unification of the church once again?
One of the unforeseen results of the Reformation was the shattering fragmentation of the church. In our Conference, The End of Protestantism, Dr. Leithart will critique American denominationalism in the context of global and historic Christianity, call for an end to Protestant tribalism, and present a vision for the future church that transcends post-Reformation divisions.
“My agenda will make Protestant churches more catholic, but that is because it will make them more evangelical.”
