Here We Stand! A Call from Confessing Evangelicals for a Modern Reformation

Here We Stand CoverThe church in sixteenth-century Europe needed a reformation. Martin Luther precipitated what we call the Reformation with his famous declaration, Here I stand! Is the evangelical church of today equally in need of a reformation? Yes, proclaim eight evangelical leaders including James Montgomery Boice, Gene Edward Veith, and Sinclair Ferguson.

Evangelicals have abandoned the truths of the Bible and the historic theology of the church, which expresses those truths, writes coeditor James Boice. We are trying to do the work of God by means of the world’s ‘theology,’ wisdom, methods, and agenda instead. Here We Stand! calls churches to return to the authority of the Bible and to apply it faithfully in their worship, ministry, policies, life, and evangelicalism.
