Faith and Reason in Luther, Zwingli, and Lutheranism

On today’s program, I dealt with the relationship between faith and reason. I began with a discussion of Luther’s own thought on the topic, while addressing criticisms that he is an irrationalist. I then discussed this in relation to Luther’s distinction between the two kingdoms. I then discussed the idea of paradox and contrasted this approach with that of Zwingli and later Calvinism.
