The Renaissance was a reaction against the attitude of the Middle Ages, and the Reformation was the passionate, divisive argument that grew out of it. Catholics, Calvinists, Lutherans, Anabaptists - our present-day divisions - were the front-page headlines of the Reformation.
Volume three of 2,000 Years of Christ's Power shows the progression of the Reformation era, and the daring bravery of its figures. It presents a period of history from which there are many lessons to be learnt - not least of all, the vibrancy of people's lives and the courage with which they faced death.
"For many years now I have said: if you want a thorough, learned but accessible and well-written history of the church, read Nick Needham's 2,000 Years of Christ's Power... Christians have an excellent resource for improving their knowledge of the history of their faith. Highly recommended."?
