Tom Nettles believes that Southern Baptist churches are still in the midst of reformation-reformation that began with the conservative resurgence but continues today. It continues because reformation requires much more that the recovery of biblical authority. Reformation must penetrate deep; it requires time, patience, sacrifice, and honest self-criticism. Modern day reformers must enact a serious re-engagement with doctrinal and practical ideas of the past, for failure to do so may result in an aborted reformation.
