Show synopsis The church in sixteenth-century Europe needed a reformation. Martin Luther precipitated what we call the Reformation with his famous declaration. "Here I stand!" Might the evangelical church of today be equally in need of a reformation? Yes, proclaim eight evangelical leaders, including David Wells (author of the widely acclaimed book No Place for Truth), James Montgomery Boice, Michael Horton, Sinclair Ferguson, and R. Albert Mohler, Jr. "Because of our love of Christ, his gospel, and his church, " they affirm in a document called The Cambridge Declaration, "we endeavor to assert anew our commitment to the central truths of the Reformation and of historic evangelicalism." This landmark declaration appears, for the first time in a book-length volume, in Here We Stand! Here We Stand! shows that truth is recovered only when the Bible has its rightful place as the supreme authority in the life of every Christian and every church. Here We Stand! calls churches to return to the authority of the Bible and to apply it faithfully in their worship, ministry, policies, life, and evangelism.
