Transforming Reformation : Reformation in Perspectives

The Sixteenth Century Reformation is considered as next to the introduction of Christianity for its impact on the life of the Church and society as a whole. For Reformation in general, and Luther in particular, directly or indirectly provided an immense impulse and a propelling force to every forward movement towards modern world and human civilization. Even five hundred years after, Luther's theological challenges and the spirit of Reformation continue to inspire people to stand against various ills and evils in the Church and society. As the situation of Church and society in our times appear rather more volatile than the situation of Luther's time, perhaps the spirit of Reformation not only appears more impelling, but its challenges and relevance finds new meanings and vibrancy. Therefore, in order to mark the commemoration of 500th Years of Reformation and the challenges beyond, the UELCI and Gurukul comeout with this volume which reads the Sixteenth Century Reformation and its relevance with new eyes and from diverse perspectives by giving strong emphasis on the issues and challenges facing the Indian society at large and the Indian Church in particular. Hope, this book will instil in readers, a vision for transforming reformation.
