Flemington Circle Book Study
The Flemington Circle meets on Thursday nights, twice a month, at 7 PM at the Ship Inn Resturant and Brewery. Please call ahead (908-788-3840) to get the date of the next meeting. All are warmly welcomed!
The current book we are studying is called The Unquenchable Flame: Discovering the Heart of the Reformation
by Michael Reeves. Reeves does an excellent job at presenting an
interesting and concise overview of the Reformation. In our day,
reading historical theology has fallen on hard times. Questions like
“Why do I need to know this?” or “What has this got to do with me now?”
are often asked because it can seem irrelevant. Can’t we just learn
about the theology and forget about where it came from? Not really.
Theological articulation usually arises out of a historical incident in
which the theology was challenged. Therefore, in order to articulate
our theology properly we need to learn about the historical situation
from which it arose. This means that historical theology is important!
The next meeting will be May 28 at 7 PM, Lord willing.
