Mohler, SBTS to lead reformation tour to Germany, Switzerland

Communications Staff — May 10, 2010

The lives and teachings of Luther, Calvin, Zwingli and Knox molded and shaped much of what we know as Western Civilization. Through the reformers and the influence of their followers, we have gained many of the religious and cultural enjoyments we daily experience – the Bible in our own language, a recovery of the Pauline doctrine of justification by faith and the expository preaching of the Word of God. Without the reformers, life as we know it would not exist.

This fall, R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, will lead an unforgettable Christian reformation tour of Europe. From Oct. 27 trough Nov. 5, participants will make their way, city by city, through Berlin, Leipzig, Wittenberg, Zurich and Geneva. In addition to visiting historic sites associated with Martin Luther, John Knox, John Calvin and Ulrich Zwingli, the group will also take in the magnificent Swiss Alps.

“You can be there as we view the house where Luther was born, tour the monastery where he first grasped the Gospel of grace, stand at the famous Wittenberg door where Luther nailed his 95 Theses and visit the historic Wartburg Castle where Luther translated the New Testament into German,” Mohler said.

Inspiration Cruises and Tours will ensure that all travel details are taken care of so participants can focus on their surroundings and historical sites.  All airport transfers to and from hotels, hotel taxes and gratuities and entrance fees to all sites will be arranged in advance by Inspiration. Throughout the tour, guests will travel by private, deluxe motorcoach with English-speaking guides and will lodge in four and five-star hotels. Reading materials will be provided by Southern Seminary and Inspiration in advance for tour preparation

“This trip will prove to be more than educational – it will be transformational,” Mohler said. “This trip will inspire our imagination, deepen our theological convictions, and fortify our resolve to stand, like the reformers, as defenders of the faith once and for all delivered to the saints. As we are challenged by the courage and conviction of the reformers we will no doubt experience reformation and renewal in our own hearts.”
