Description

“The just shall live by faith” (Hab. 2:4; Ro. 1:17) was the motto or proof text of various Protestant Reformations from the sixteenth century forward. But what exactly does that verse mean, and what does it imply for the Christian life? This workshop will look briefly at what the prophet Habakkuk and the apostle Paul meant by the statement, and then examine how it was used programmatically by five important groups of Protestants: Lutherans, Calvinists, Anabaptists, Anglicans and Wesleyans. Workshop participants will be invited to reflect on which reading of that verse seems most pertinent to their own lives and to our common life at SPU today.
