November already! Where has the year gone?

Here are some worthwhile articles to read or share for this week.

There were some excellent Church History/Reformation Day resources, including this podcast by Michael Reeves on “What Do Protestants and Roman Catholics Disagree About?”

Gavin Ortland talks about the relevance of church history to modern believers.

John Piper answers the question, “What Did the Reformation Give Us?”

Finally, an article by the late R.C. Sproul on the justification by faith that is well worth reading and sharing.

Author: Peter Bogert

Married to Laura, with three adult children, 7 grandchildren. I’m an avid baseball fan, and I enjoy listening to audiobooks about military history, and reading Theology. I was ordained a Baptist pastor and served two churches over a 41 year period. After a three year hiatus I'm glad to be serving at Calvary Bible Fellowship Church in Coopersburg, PA. And I’m glad you stopped by!
