Reflection Questions
  • Give several modern examples of each of the three kinds of forces for renewal represented by Latourette’s chapters 18, 19, and 20.

  • You will note that Latourette does not refer to the Crusades as a force for renewal, but it was, lamentably, an evidence of - and result of renewal. What could be a modern example of this paradox?

  • Draw a diagram which represents the different periods of time which are recognized by Latourette, White, Dawson, and the second, third, and fourth epochs utilized in this course.

  • What is Pierson’s consistently stated insight into the way renewal comes about in the history of the Christian movement?
