Характеристики protestants

Five hundred years ago an obscure monk challenged the authority of the Pope with a radical vision of what Christianity could be. The revolution he unwittingly set in motion inspired one of the most creative and destructive movements in human history. It has toppled governments, upended social norms and transformed millions of people's understanding of their relationship with God. In this dazzling global history that charts five centuries of innovation and change, Alec Ryrie makes the case that Protestants made the modern world.Protestants introduces us to the men and women who defined and redefined this quarrelsome faith. Some turned to their newly accessible bibles to justify bold acts of political opposition, others to support a new understanding of who they were and what they could and should do. Above all they were willing to fight for their beliefs. If you look at any of the great confrontations of the last five centuries, you will find Protestants defining the debate on both sides: for and against colonialism, slavery, fascism, communism, women's rights and more. Protestants have also fought amongst themselves, but what unites them all is a passion for God and a vital belief in the principle of self-determination. Protestants are people who love God and take on the world.Protestants have set out for all four corners of the globe, embarking on courageous journeys into the unknown to set up new communities and experiment with new systems of government - like the Puritans, Quakers and Methodists who made their way to our shores. They are resourceful innovators and creative destroyers and are making new converts every day in China, Africa and Latin America. Protestants created America and defined its special brand of entrepreneurial diligence. Whether or not you are yourself a Protestant, or even a Christian, you live in a world, and are guided by principles and ideas, shaped by Protestants.
