An inspiring evangelistic and educational resource telling the story of the gospel-powered Reformation that changed the world.
It shouldn’t be possible to talk about the Reformation without talking about the gospel.
Martin Luther’s discovery has fascinated artists, inspired reformers, envisioned abolitionists, and given beautiful hope to millions. It has changed the world — and continues to do so.
Michael Reeves serves the church in this 500th-anniversary year by writing an evangelistic resource that tells the story of that discovery, draws out its effectiveness and beauty, and speaks of its consequences for the history of the world.
On this 500th year since the beginning of the Reformation, this small but powerful resource enables you to capture the historical moment effectively to carry on the work of Reformation: to get the story of the gospel to world.
Michael Reeves is the author of numerous books, as well as President and Professor of Theology at Union School of Theology, Oxford.
“As I read this thrilling little introduction to the Reformation my heart started to beat with joy. For this 500th anniversary I’m going to try to persuade everyone to read it.” — Rico Tice, author; associate minister, All Souls Church, London
“If you want to know what made this movement explosively joyful… read this book.” — John Piper, author, speaker, founder of DesringGod.org, Chancellor of Bethlehem College and Seminary
“Thank God for the world-changing Reformation recovering the truth of theall-sufficientt 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, author; speaker; founder of Newfrontiers, a family of 1500 churches across 70 countries
“Captivating and heart-warming vignettes of the (now famous) freedom-fighters whose radical discovery re-shaped Western Europe and impacted the world.” — Richard Cunningham, Director of UCCF: the Christian Unions, London
“Immensely readable. In these few pages not only is Martin Luther brought to life but the rediscovery of a world-changing message for all centuries in all its relevance for today is given wings.” — Trevor Archer, The Globe Church, London
