New Life In The Shadow Of Death: The Sanctification Crisis In The Reformation

Office HoursThe doctrine of sanctification is a hot topic right now in evangelical and Reformed circles but the church had a doctrine (or doctrines) of sanctification for centuries before the current discussion. Indeed, one way to understand the Reformation is as a response to the prevailing medieval doctrine of the progressive sanctification but all did not go perfectly as the Protestants sought to recover the biblical doctrine and practice of sanctification.  John Fesko, Academic Dean and Professor of Systematic Theology and Historical Theology at Westminster Seminary California joins us to talk about how the doctrine of sanctification developed before the Reformation, in the Reformation, and into the 17th century. Here’s is the episode.
