The author of Ecclesiastes states, “What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun” (Eccl. 1:9). Apart from the theological significance of this profound statement, another observation arises concerning the study of history: it matters. Although time progresses in a linear direction and contains unique, monumental events (culminating in the return of Jesus), creation witnesses the repetition of patterns, movements, and interactions between humans. The church today faces problems similar to the church of yesteryear, albeit packaged and branded in different forms. A careful study of the history of the church prepares and equips its members to face the difficulties of its own day. The Reformation of the sixteenth century emphasized a return to the Word of God as a remedy for the theological deficiencies of the Roman Catholic Church, and Dr. Nichols embarks on this series to assist the current church by understanding the solas of the Reformation and their place for the people of God in all ages.
