For anyone with an interest in our cultural and intellectual milieu and how it came to be, this is a fascinating presentation. If it sounds like an abstruse subject, you will be surprised and delighted by how accessible and--dare I say--down to earth Brian Carwana makes the subject.

A very rich and thoughtful program providing insight into the early development of western culture and the roots of some of the current thinking in our present day tumultuous political and cultural scene.

I am a life long Lutheran with generations before me who were Lutheran clergy. And I learned new things today from Brian Carwana! He is a very engaging speaker, full of really interesting information, and seriously smart! I would love to hear him again and am already referring my friends! Thank you!

This was a fascinating account of a pivotal piece of our world history that explained a great deal regarding our current social/political world. I thought I had a good understanding of the Protestant Revolution, but this added a new understanding. Also, well delivered and interesting.
