After 500 years, can we re-evaluate, perhaps even put behind us, the disunity that the Reformation caused? Dr. Hans Boersma is convinced that it's worth our while to take a fresh look at the events of the Reformation.

Rather than discussing the specific theological differences between Catholics and Protestants, this lecture takes a look 'behind the scenes' and argues that a sacramental approach to reality can unite Catholics and Protestants in their struggle against the secularity of modernity.
