Re: The Protestant Reformation

For the purposes of understanding RC Sproul in context, how far back should I go?
All the way to Luther or should I focus on England?

At a minimum, I’d say you need to go back to the English reformers (Knox et al) and the Westminster Confession.

But you probably should go back to John Calvin as well.

And you arguably should go all the way back to Saint Augustine, who was foundational for Luther’s and Calvin’s views.

ABE: a good basic starting point might be R.C. Sproul’s booklet, “What is Reformed Theology?”

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." – Albert Einstein

“I am very astonished that the scientific picture of the real world around me is very deficient. It gives us a lot of factual information, puts all of our experience in a magnificently consistent order, but it is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart, that really matters to us. It cannot tell us a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight; it knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity. Science sometimes pretends to answer questions in these domains, but the answers are very often so silly that we are not inclined to take them seriously.” – Erwin Schroedinger
