Reformation 500: How the Greatest Revival Since Pentecost Continues to Shape the World Today

Reformation 500: How the Greatest Revival Since Pentecost Continues to Shape the World Today

$39.99

Paperback
:
"And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us; We will not fear, for God hath willed. His truth to triumph through us."

In a church marked by the dismissal of Scripture, idolatrous worship, and corrupt clergy, men and women arose in protest. Today we call this protest movement the Protestant Reformation. At its heart, the Reformation was a great God-sent revival of the church. Centered on the recovery of biblical truth and the gospel of free grace, this movement from God continues to instruct and inspire modern-day believers.

Reformation 500 celebrates the Reformation and probes the ways it has shaped our world for the better. With essays from an array of disciplines, this book explores the impact of the Reformation across a wide range of human experience. Literature, education, visual art, culture, politics, music, theology, church life, and Baptist history all provide prisms through which the Reformation legacy is viewed. From Augustine to Zwingli, historical characters like Luther, Calvin, Barth, Bonhoeffer, Rembrandt, Bach, Bunyan, and Wycliffe all find their way into this amazing 500-year story. From Baptists to Anglicans, scientists to poets, Reformation 500 weaves these many threads into a modern-day tapestry.
