Jun 1st, By David Anders Category: He began with Christ and the apostles, dashed through the book of Acts, skipped over the Catholic Middle Ages and leaped directly to Wittenberg, From Luther he hopped to the English revivalist John Wesley, crossed the Atlantic to the American revivals and slid home to his own Church, Birmingham, Alabama, early s.
Cheers and singing followed him to the plate. The congregation loved it. I grew up in an Evangelical Church in the s immersed in the myth of the Reformation.
I was sure that my Church preached the gospel, which we received, unsullied, from the Reformers. After college, I earned a doctorate in Church history so I could flesh out the story and prove to all the poor Catholics that they were in the wrong Church.
I never imagined my own founder, the Protestant Reformer John Calvin, would point me to the Catholic faith.
My Church practiced a pared-down, Bible-focused, born-again spirituality shared by most Evangelicals. I went to a Christian college and then a seminary where I found the same attitude.
