The Reformation unfolded in the cathedrals and town squares of Europe, beginning with the Catholic Church and its desperate need for reform. The dramatic events that followed are traced from John Wycliffe in England, to the burning of John Hus at the stake, to the rampant sale of indulgences in the cities and towns of Germany, to Martin Luther's nailing of the Ninety-Five Theses, to John Calvin's reform of Geneva.
In this book, Erwin W. Lutzer captures the people, places, and big ideas that fueled the Reformation. He also explains its lasting influence on the church and Western civilisation, and, perhaps most importantly, he shows why the actions of passionate believers five hundred years ago still matter today.
"As Lutzer demonstrates in this book, the theological convictions of Luther, Zwingli, and Calvin need to be recovered as an antidote to the watered-down gospel proclaimed from many Protestant pulpits in our day... Let this book introduce you to their lives, their ministries, and, most importantly, their theology."
