GUEST: Dr. Stephen Nichols, President, Reformation Bible College

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

We hope you are having a meaningful Thanksgiving weekend, remembering and expressing gratitude to God for his many and undeserved blessings in your life and our country.

You may remember our interview last year with Dr. Stephen Nichols, president of Reformation Bible College, chief academic officer for Ligonier Ministries, and professor of historical theology, about “How The Reformation Changed Western Civilization.

Dr. Nichols is going to join us this Thanksgiving weekend to discuss how the Reformation influenced the early American Pilgrims and Puritans and how these two groups were similar and different.  He will also talk about how the Puritans’ pursuit of sanctification is something that should be emulated by Christians today.

We hope you join us for a LIVE program this Thanksgiving weekend on The Christian Worldview.
