As the Protestant Reformation swept across Europe, it did not go unanswered by the Catholic Church it was opposing. The Counter-Reformation, a strategy to press back against the advances of the Protestant Reformation, and the Jesuits would be a significant part of taking back influence that the church had lost. Join John Bradshaw on location in Europe and be encouraged by the faith of the Reformers in the face of fierce opposition. Features special guest Dr. Gerard Damsteegt.
A Wall of Separation
Eventually the Protestant Reformation would drive the Puritans to not only separate themselves from the church by doctrine, but also by distance. The Pilgrims headed for the New World where freedom of conscience would take hold in a way not seen in any other civil experiment in human history. Join John Bradshaw on location in New England and discover how the Puritans shaped the cornerstones of the American experience and of the final stages of the Protestant Reformation. Features special guest Dr. Lincoln Steed.
