Description

Burning pyres, nuns on the run, stirring courage, and comic relief: the Protestant Reformation is a gripping tale, packed with drama. But what motivated the Reformers? And what were they really like? "The Unquenchable Flame," a lively, accessible, and fully informative introduction to the Reformation by Michael Reeves, brings to life the movement's most colorful characters (Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, The Puritans, etc.), examines their ideas, and shows the profound and personal relevance of Reformation thinking for today. Also included are a lengthy Reformation timeline, a map of key places in the Reformation, further reading suggestions, and, in this U.S. edition, a new foreword by 9 Marks Ministries president Mark Dever.

Customer reviews

I have just finished reading The Unquenchable Flame and I think it is brilliant. It is clearly very well researched, but that work is not held out for our admiration. Rather the book, in its scope, clear and easy style and honesty, holds out the Jesus of the Reformers and the Bible for our admiration. The Reformers are not presented as great men, but as men freely justified by a great Lord and Saviour. I learnt lots from this book, but also had my heart warmed towards Jesus Christ and my easy, low-cost service of Christ questioned. This is a book about the Reformation, but also a book about us and our times, because Jesus has not changed and his offer of forgiveness and righteousness to sinful men and women. I would recommend this as a great introduction to the Reformation, but also as a great read if you know the territory already.show more
