Protestants: The Faith That Made the Modern World (Viking, April ) provides a comprehensive overview of major, and many minor, events throughout the history of Protestantism, and how it shaped and impacted the modern era.

Protestants: The Faith that Made the Modern World is not a Bible primer. Although Ryrie is eminently qualified with a Ph.D. in theology from Oxford, he avoids jumping in to love and fight himself. That would have made the book longer, and probably less enjoyable.

This is a history, which judges the actions of movements, more its modern meaning book judging their. R&P: The subtitle of your book states that Protestants “made the modern world.” How. AR: The Protestant Reformation is a huge event in the history of the modern world.

You can find its fingerprints almost everywhere. But I’m not just saying that this is a really big thing that is woven deeply into the story. Protestantism is one of the major branches of Christianity today stemming from the movement known as the Protestant Reformation began in Europe in the early 16th century by Christians who opposed many of the unbiblical beliefs, practices, and abuses Protestantism place within the Roman Catholic Church.

Protestantism eventually became the majority faith throughout northwestern Europe and in England and English-speaking America. In the 19th century, missionaries from those areas spread Protestantism throughout the world, establishing, with Roman Catholicism, a presence in Asia and Africa and in largely Catholic Latin America.

The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism (German: Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus) is a book written by Max Weber, a German sociologist, economist, and as a series of essays, the original German text was composed in andand was translated into English for the first time by American sociologist Talcott Parsons in Author: Max Weber.

Protestantism, movement that began in northern Europe in the early 16th century as a reaction to medieval Roman Catholic doctrines and practices.

Along with Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy, Protestantism became one of three major forces in Christianity. Learn more about Protestantism in this article.

Yet its not because its not a great book its packed but because it is a book of considerable length. The book has thoroughly schooled me on Protestantism, its origin and influences. It is a book I would encourage anyone interested This afternoon, I finished Alec Ryrie’s “Protestants: The Faith That Made the Modern World”.4/5.

THE History of Protestantism, which we propose to write, is no mere history of dogmas. The teachings of Christ are the seeds; the modern Christendom, with its new life, is the goodly tree which has sprung from them. We shall speak of the seed and then of the tree, so small at its beginning, but destined one day to cover the earth.

The book is readable and interesting, unlike the introduction. The book will be of interest to those interested in the development of Protestant (Lutheran) theology through history – though the writer clearly states that he has no desire of leaving the reader a devotee of Luther’s teaching; the author clearly states that he is : Pastor Floyd.

Protestantism was in its very essence the religion of a book, and Protestants would be sure to see to it that the sacred volume on which they based their religion, including the reforms they introduced, contained no book but those which in their opinion had the.

It should also be noted that not every item of the Modernist programme need be traced to the Protestant Reformation; for the modern spirit is the distilled residue of many philosophies and many religions: the point is that Protestantism proclaims itself its standard-bearer, and claims credit for its achievements.

Instead, having explained liberalism as a simple reaction to what preceded it, Simpson devotes most of his book not to charting its rise but to following the illiberal progress of Protestantism. Assuming its modern identity in the Azusa Street revival in Los Angeles in the early twentieth century, the movement now constitutes a staggering one quarter of all Christians in the world, which makes it, Ryrie notes, not only the “main engine” of contemporary Protestantism but “the most dramatic religious success story of modern times.”.

His book is a study of the ways in which the values of ascetic Protestantism contributed to the development of the spirit of capitalism. However, he argues that there are also causal links between the Protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism that run the other way.

Question: "What is Protestantism?" Answer: Protestantism is one of the major divisions of the Christian faith. Traditionally, Protestantism includes all churches outside of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Church traditions. Protestant churches affirm the principles of the Protestant Reformation set into motion by Martin Luther’s 95 Theses in Protestants were first called by that name.

They worship the same God, but the principles of their faith are different. Five hundred years after the Reformation, there are still painful divisions between Protestants and Catholics. It should also be noted that not every item of the Modernist programme need be traced to the Protestant Reformation ; for the modern spirit is the distilled residue of many philosophies and many religions: the point is that Protestantism proclaims itself its standard-bearer, and claims credit for its achievements.Science in the modern world, as we know it, owes much to contingent factors, among them the Protestant Reformation and its unforeseen aftermath.

My clear suggestion has been that the methods of modern science, its theoretical content, and its social significance all owe something to Protestantism.
