Episode 7 of By the Waters of Bablyon Podcast: The Reformation of Worship
This week we celebrate the anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, a subject I address in this most recent episode of my podcast.
In this episode, I highlight ways in which the Reformers brought worship back to the people, a biblical emphasis of the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 14.
I also recommend a Reformation-era hymn that focuses on Christ’s sacrifice in our place, “Ah, Holy Jesus” by Johann Heermann.
Finally, I recommend a book that discusses ways in which the Protestant Reformers recovered Scripturally-regulated worship: Worship Reformed According to Scripture by Hughes Oliphant Old.
I pray this episode will be edifying for you!
