Very good primer, focusing on justification. Should lose half a star for affirming a few controversial points without explanation. ( )

Very enjoyable account of Reformation with consecutive chapters on Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, Britain, the Puritans and its importance. Starts with a generally horrifying account of medieval religion and all through gives a balanced account of the heroes. Puts justification by faith at the centre then and feels it should be now but notes how Catholic Evangelical relationships are different now. Gives fair attention to all the dodgy areas, predestination, Luther on the Jews, all those radicals, and tries to give a fair innings to the Puritans. ( )

A succinct and thrilling read about the Reformation. This is a perfect introduction for those wishing to familiarise themselves with the Reformation from a conservative-evangelical standpoint. Reeves has a particular focus on developments in England and Scotland in the second-half of the book, which almost overshadows the first half of the book, which is focused on Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli. Then again, I guess the book was meant for an English-reading British audience, and so it seems appropriate to gain the relevant context for the current British church and its place in the reformation of the church worldwide. There is plenty of comic relief throughout. I particularly loved the story of an English layperson, after having listened to a sermon that had already lasted two hours, who exclaimed, 'For God's sake, do go on, do go on!' After all, so few had heard the Bible in their own language before this point in history. How often do we take this for granted in our own churches? Highly recommended. ( )

This is a very good and brief overview of the Reformation, covering Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Knox, Henry VIII, Elizabeth, and the Puritans. Other reading recommended: Here I Stand by Bainton; for the medieval mind, The Discarded Image by CS Lewis; The Radical Reformation by GH Williams; for England, The English Reformation by AG Dickens; Reformation: Europe's House Divided....by MacCulloch; on Puritans, Among God's Giants by Packer; on Britain, Five English Reformers by Ryle.
