This is Lecture 9 in the Survey of Church History course offered by For the Mission Institute. In this lecture, Dr. Jonny White discusses the Reformation including John Calvin, The Radical Reformation, The French, Dutch, and Scottish Reformations, The Catholic Counter Reformation, and the English Reformation.

Part of For the Mission’s 2 year missionary training program, see bottom of the page for more details.

For the Mission is a non-profit missions agency located in Pensacola, Florida. We are in the mission to take the Gospel to the nations and make disciples of every people group on earth. The FTM institute functions in partnership with Ekklesia Theological Seminary and support of a few local like-minded churches. It was created as part of FTM’s missionary training/equipping program and seeks to provide free theological teaching for those called to become missionary’s.

There is just something about the country of Scotland that has captivated me. I’d love to go to Scotland, and there are 3 primary reasons why. First the Christian History of the country and what God did there through men such as Patrick Hamilton, George Wishart, John Knox and others is awe inspiring. To preach where these men preached, to preach the same Gospel Truths they preached (because the truth of the gospel is transcendent) would be humbling. So below there are 2 videos on Reformers who led to way with the Gospel and 1 that displays Gospel powered open-air preaching (www.jeremiahcry.com).

The second reason is the manhood stones. Scotland is famous for the many stones (Inver, Dinnie, etc…) which men have lifted through the centuries to prove their strength, some of which boys on their way to manhood would lift to prove themselves as men. I greatly enjoy strength athletics (Strongman, Highland Games, lifting and carrying odd things) and would love to see some of these manhood stones and if possible to attempt to lift them. The fourth video is an excellent documentary by Rogue Fitness called “Stoneland” which feature many of these stones.

And third the scenery is breathtaking. So I have added a video at the end of this post showing some of the God’s beautiful creation.
