Germany, Switzerland, and an Optional Extension to Prague with The Moody Church 2016
Join Dr. and Rebecca Lutzer of The Moody Church on an extraordinary tour of the Reformation sites in Germany and Switzerland. As we visit the lands of Martin Luther and the reformers, Dr. Lutzer will not only immerse us in the history, but explain the resulting effects the Reformation had on Christian thought and worship that we still see even today. By walking where Luther lived, taught, wrote, and preached, you’ll enhance your understanding of his world, his struggles and his teachings. An award-winning author of many books, including Hitler’s Cross, Dr. Lutzer’s insights into Nazi Germany and the Christian community during Hitler’s reign will give you a fresh perspective to your experience as we travel through Germany.
This remarkable opportunity includes the full experience: hotel accommodations (4-star or better); many of your meals; all land transportation by air-conditioned motor coaches; English-speaking, historically authoritative guides; unique worship opportunities; Dr. Lutzer’s experienced leadership and teachings; and even an opportunity to renew your wedding vows in Luther’s own church! The tour operates May 31 to June 12, 2016 with an optional extension to Prague from June 12 to 15, 2016.
The tour includes deluxe, 4-star + hotels, most meals, many of which are very unique (see itinerary for specifics of 5 lunches, 7 dinners, and all breakfasts), round-trip transfers for those taking our air program, all transportation, all sightseeing as noted, fully escorted with all teaching materials, and all tips.
