The April 2017 issue of Tabletalk will consider the history of the church and the world in the seventeenth century. Although most Christians have at least a passing familiarity with the sixteenth century and the Protestant Reformation, knowledge of the church’s history during the seventeenth century is much less widespread. This is unfortunate, for the seventeenth century was highly influential in the development of Reformation thought, piety, and practice. This issue will examine the history of the church in the seventeenth century, focusing particularly on developments within the Reformed tradition that have shaped our understanding of theology and the Christian life to this day.
