Getting the Reformation Wrong: Correcting Some Misunderstandings
James R. Payton Jr.
Getting the Reformation wrong is a common problem. Most students of history know that Martin Luther nailed his ninety-five theses to the Wittenberg Church door and that John Calvin penned the Institutes of the Christian Religion. However, the Reformation did not unfold in the straightforward, monolithic fashion some may think. It was, in fact, quite a messy affair. Using the most current Reformation scholarship, James R. Payton exposes, ...
Morning Star of the Reformation
good to read when studing Luther/Reformation
I recommend this book for students ages 10-13 who are studying Martin Luther and the Reformation. (I actually read it with my 9 year old, who is pretty bright. But I don't think it will hold the attention of most 9 year olds.) The book gives you a real good feel for how it was for the clergy in this time period and the tension that existed, and continued to be a problem, in a revolutionary time ...
Famous Men Of The Renaissance & Reformation
Robert G. Shearer
Interesting way to cover history
My children and I really enjoyed this treatment of the Renaissance and Reformation. I recommend all the titles in this series.
The Reformation Study Bible: English Standard Version Hardcover 2nd Ed w/Maps
Published by Ligonier Ministries
General Editor: R. C. Sproul
P & R Publishing
What's New in the Second Edition
I had the first edition of the RSB Hardback. It was my favorite Bible. Along the way I misplaced it and I used other Bibles that I had around the house. I came across the page on Amazon for the second edition while looking up a Bible for my mother. I got pretty excited to see a second edition, but I couldn't find what the differences were between the two editions. So, I blindly bought one for my ...
The Protestant Reformation: Revised Edition
Hans J. Hillerbrand
The Protestant Reformation
One of the few books that makes sources of the Protestant Reformation available and accessible to students. A well thought out collection of documents with useful introductions that covers the Reformation from Luther through the English Reformation. The introductions are clear and to the point. The sources are well-chosen to bring out some of the major literature of the period.
A Reformation Reader: Primary Texts With Introductions
This collection of readings focusing upon the sixteenth century Reformations in Europe is a wonderful collection for students, seminarians, pastors and interested laypersons who want to read the actual source documents (or good translations of such) rather than narrative histories and opinions about the key ideas and documents that helped shape the early years of the Protestant Reformations. As ...
Wonderful History -- Goofy Terminology
I'll echo the reviews saying that this is a wonderful text on the Reformation, somehow taking an incredibly complex, sprawling subject and rendering it charming and coherent. It's just superb history. That said, MacCulloch's terminology becomes downright comic at points. A couple examples: the "Atlantic Isles." The "Church and Commonwealth." Or "Indios." I just about fell out of my chair ...
Call to Spiritual Reformation, A: Priorities from Paul and His Prayers
D. A. Carson
The Jigsaw Puzzle from God...
REVIEW NOTE: I don't typically review the details of the book, just how it impacts me. I figure if my life isn't impacted by a book, why did I read it. Here is my review of that impact. A month or two ago I read "A Call to Spiritual Reformation" by D.A. Carson. At that time I noticed a couple of statements that he made that really impacted my approach to Scripture. I briefly mention one in my ...
The Reformation: How a Monk and a Mallet Changed the World
Stephen J. Nichols
Concise and Readable Summary of the Reformation
Stephen Nichols is a story teller and fine writer of history steeped in the writings of Luther's era. His superb book "The Reformation: How a Monk and a Mallet Changed the World," was published in 2007 by Crossway Books; he's presented a stirring and deeply relevant volume on the Reformation and its aftereffects. This work is endorsed by: - Michael Horton - Ligonier Ministries - Steve ...
Reformation Debate, A
Great primary source - real Jewel
This very helpful book is really two letters from two highly qualified church leaders, Cardinal Sadoleto for the Catholics and John Calvin for the Reformers. The editor writes a very fair and balanced introduction giving biographic background to both men and why they wrote. Cardinal Sadoleto, having heard that Calvin and Farel have left Geneve, writes to encourage the city fathers to return ...
The Road to Financial Reformation: Warnings, Consequences, Reforms
The Road to Financial Reformation
This book provided an insightful overview of the causes of the current financial "meltdown" and future strategies to avoid a recurrence. The book is well written, but not an easy read for the layman. I highly recommend this book for those involved in the finance industry or those teaching finance at the undergraduate or graduate levels.
The European Reformations Sourcebook
The European Reformations
I believe a key to the quality of "European Reformations" (ER) is the use of the plural in the title which is followed up in text. Lindberg has an ability to convey ideas, concepts, etc. better than most authors especially in this complex subject area of religious and socio-political change. Even if one has no significant familiarity with the often called "Reformation," you will quickly gain ...
The Second Reformation: Reshaping the Church for the 21st Century
William A. Beckham
Touch Outreach Ministries
A Reformation is truly coming
This is a must read for all in the ministry who are eager to learn from the NT church. Beckham carefully takes us through church history to show how our present "One winged" church was a result of Constantine's Edict of 312AD. He shows us how the "Two winged church" is a more biblical model. I was especially blessed by his presentation of how the "two winged church" demonstrates God's Holy ...
Church History Volume One: From Christ to Pre-Reformation: The Rise and Growth of the Church in Its Cultural, ...
READ THIS BOOK BEFORE YOU ENTER SEMINARY! It is VERY helpful, and you'll have a baseline knowledge for the first semester, and this book covers many issues and people YOU WILL encounter your first week. Conservative - not crazy liberal - point of view. Kinda dry, but so helpful, you don't even notice.
Roots of the Reformation
Coming Home Resources
I really enjoyed this book. I'm a Roman Catholic and this book seemed to be very honest with the shamefull behavior of some of the Catholic hierarchy at and prior to Luthers time. It was very revealing in that if Luther had a problem with the Church then that should have been what he wanted to change. But that wasn't the case. This book explains how he used this unfortunate time to use as a ...
The Reformation: A History (Modern Library Chronicles)
Collinson's Summing Up
Only a master can write a book like this -- a witty, learned summary, doing the impossible by compressing a vast subject into a slim volume. Though Collinson is scrupulously fair, the account, perhaps necessarily, given its subject matter, tilts slightly toward the Reformers as occupying the high ground -- but high by only inches. Collinson alternately communicates both a wry detachment from ...
A History of Christian Thought: Volume 3: From the Protestant Reformation to the Twentieth Century (Revised ...
Justo L González
What is "Christian Thought"?
I would disagree with the previous reviewer that this book does wrong when it devotes one chapter (entitled The Changing Philosophical Setting) to the philosophy that shaped 18th century theology. The fact is that Kant's philosophy very profoundly affected Christian THOUGHT both in his own time and to this very day. The book is not entitled "A History of Christianity" but rather "A History of ...
NIV Spirit of the Reformation Study Bible
Great Reformation Bible with good resources at the end.
This is a great NIV bible with Reformation based cometary. I love the Resources at the end with Biblical proofs. This is my second one of these bibles.
The Reformation of the Sixteenth Century
Roland H. Bainton
Excellent introduction to important time in European history
First, I must admit that I like history, but I am not very familiar with the reformation. Having said that, I think Roland Bainton's book is an excellent introduction to the topic. It is very well written, well researched, and well presented. I was duly impressed with the author's ability to tell the story of what happened - the key discussions, decisions, participants, etc. without boring the ...
Popular Politics and the English Reformation (Cambridge Studies in Early Modern British History)
Ethan H. Shagan
Cambridge University Press
This book is brilliant
The fundamental question Ethan Shagan's book seeks to answer is how a government without a bureaucracy, police force, or standing army managed to affect the English Reformation. Shagan answers that it was an act of negotiation between the people and the government, an "act not done to the people [but] done with them" (25). Shagan's book represents one of the first post-revisionist attempts to ...
