Episode 1

Getting to know the Long Reformation, its composition and its legacy.

Ep. 1 Intro & Long Term Reformation with Dr. Mark Quanstrom

For its inaugural episode, the Rev. Dr. Mark Quanstrom joins Hear the Voice and Prayer to discuss the implications and history of the Long Reformation. Dr. Quanstrom and host Dr. Robinson also examine the status of Reformation history in the contemporary local church and explore the model that Luther’s life provides for Protestant academia. They also delve into the legitimacy of the idea of the “Long Reformation” as a form of historical periodization and the role of John Wesley in that chronology.
