2000 Years of Christ's Power #03: Renaissance and Reformation

2000 Years of Christ's Power #03: Renaissance and Reformation

N R Needham

$30.99

Paperback
This book was born out of the author's deep conviction that today's Christians can benefit enormously from learning what God has done in the past. The mighty acts of Christ did not come to a halt soon after the events recorded in the book of Acts. In every century since the first, the Almighty has been at work and believers can trace his footsteps by studying the way that Christians of a previous generation faced the challenges that confronted them.

This volume deals with the period of Church history that was dominated by the Reformation. Here we encounter the Lutheran Reformation, spearheaded by figures like Martin Luther and Philip Melanchthon, and the Reformed Reformation, where Ulrich Zwingli, Martin Bucer, and John Calvin led the way. We meet the Radical Reformers, in all their diversity, including Menno Simons and the Mennonites. We also examine the Catholic Counter-Reformation, and explore the very different world of Eastern Othodoxy. In all this we see how theology, spirituality, worship and culture were affected by the events of the sixteenth century.

Nick Needham is a Londoner by birth and upbringing. He studied theology at New College, Edinburgh University, where he specialized in Church History. He also taught a course at New College on the life and works of the Swiss Reformer Ulrich Zwingli, at the same time completing his PhD thesis on the nineteenth-century Scottish theologian Thomas Erskine of Linlathen. He then taught Systematic Theology at the Scottish Baptist College in Glasgow for several years before spending a semester at the Samuel Bill Theological College, where he taught Church History. After a period as assistant pastor in a church in north London, he moved to the Highland Theological College, Dingwall, where he teaches Church History. He recently accepted a call to a pastorate in Inverness. Nick Needham is also the author of 2,000 YEARS OF CHRIST'S POWER - PARTS 1 AND 2. 496 pages, from Grace Publications.


- Publisher Following on from the highly regarded and well received volumes 1 and 2, this new volume covers the vital period of the Reformation. The author continues to combine well presented historical detail in a lively and readable style. This book will become a "must read" for this key historical period in the history of Christian's church.
