It shouldn’t be possible to talk about the Reformation without talking about the gospel.
Luther’s discovery has fascinated artists, inspired reformers, envisioned abolitionists and given beautiful hope to millions. It has changed the world and it continues to do so.
Michael Reeves has served the church in this 500th anniversary year by writing an evangelistic resource that tells the story of that discovery, that draws out its effectiveness and beauty, and that speaks of its consequences for the history of the world.
On this 500th anniversary of the Reformation this resource, priced to be given away in numbers, enables you to use the historical moment effectively to carry on the work of Reformation: to get the story of the gospel to world.
Running through this little book on the Reformation is the surprising legacy of joy. The fact that we have no portraits of any Reformers smiling is a fluke of history. Nobody smiled for portraits until fifty years ago! If you want to know what made this movement explosively joyful, don’t look at the pictures, read this book. ~ John Piper founder and teacher, desiringGod.org; chancellor, Bethlehem College & Seminary, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Thank God for the world changing Reformation recovering the truth of the all sufficient cross of Christ! As Michael Reeves points out in his inspiring text, prior to the Reformation religion was disguising the problem rather than solving it. Five hundred years later people from around the world with open Bibles celebrate the rediscovery of light that dispelled their overwhelming darkness. ~ Terry Virgo founder of NewFrontiers, an international network of over 1,500 churches
Captivating and heart–warming vignettes of the (now famous) freedom–fighters whose radical discovery re–shaped Western Europe and impacted the world. Their story is beautifully captured in this charming little book. ~ Richard Cunningham, UCCF (The UK equivalent of IVF)
