Product Description

Stephen J. Nichols is more than a storyteller. He is truly a teacher, presenting a winning apologia for the necessity of church history and the importance of the Reformation for today. The Reformation deals with difficult questions of unity, ecumenism, and pluralism, and---despite its playful tone---it considers these issues in the spirit of the Reformation. Accordingly, The Reformation also contains an appendix of source documents, including excerpts from the Ninety-Five Theses and significant confessions and catechisms.

"Professor Stephen Nichols is already well-known for his remarkable ability to make history live and sing. This new work is no exception and will simply enhance his well-deserved reputation. It is a scintillating helicopter tour of the amazing men---and wonderful women---of the Reformation. Here conviction joins with courage, holiness with humor, in a wonderful medley of Christian heroes and heroines. You will find reading this book a pleasure and a challenge-from beginning to end. But take note of this church history health warning---these pages may prove addictive!"
--Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson, First Presbyterian Church of Columbia (SC)

Stephen J. Nichols is a professor at Lancaster Bible College and Graduate School. He earned a Ph.D. fromWestminster Theological Seminary. He has written six books, most recently The Pages of Church History. He lives with his wife and two sons in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Publisher's Description

Mention history and some might struggle to stifle a yawn. But when presented as a narrative it can often be compelling reading. Stephen J. Nichols takes a key period in time, the Reformation, and presents its major players in a fresh way. From Martin Luther, a simple monk who wielded the mallet, to kings and queens, this book goes behind the scenes to uncover the human side of these larger-than-life Reformers. Along the way readers meet Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, Kings Henry VIII and Edward VI, Lady Jane Grey, Anne Bradstreet, and many others.

For those wanting to see history in its context, Nichols also provides a sampling of primary source materials. It is an engaging read that will remind readers of the foundational truths that can never be taken for granted by the church in any age. Includes numerous illustrations.

    Kudos:Nichols' goal of making history fun hit the mark with this reader. I thoroughly enjoyed every page. For me in particular it is a refreshing change of pace from the heavy theological books I have been sticking my nose into recently. I greatly appreciated the reader friendly format: lots of pictures and informative sidebar tidbits keep the reader engaged. His minimalist approach was a smart decision. This is a history book for people who hate reading about history. It neither bores nor confuses. Nichols doesn't get bogged down with unnecessary details and stays focused on the central theme: introducing the major players of the Protestant Reformation and how they impacted the world around them.Knocks: This book's greatest strength is also its greatest weakness: Brevity. In a mere 159 pages the author expertly guides his readers through history's most pivotal revolution. I came away both informed and entertained. I now have a well-rounded, panoramic view of the Reformation and how a handful of blessed men changed the world by God's grace. However, the book's concise format leaves the reader wanting more - much more. The moment I laid the book down I thought, 'that was great - while it lasted'. I believe that is exactly the effect Nichols intended to have on the reader. He designed the book to simply be an introduction to the vast, rich and rewarding history of the Reformation and its subsequent impact on civilization. It is a tasty morsel intended to whet the appetite for the main course. The problem is, where do I go from here? What book can I read that chronicles the deeper details of the Reformation that will not in some way disappoint me because it is not written as warmly and lively as this volume? It is my hope that Nichols is working on a large scale edition that explores the Reformation even more fully.

    This book has been very good as an introductory history lesson on the reformation. Our Women's Bible study has really enjoyed it.

    This book like others by Nichols is concise and practical. It is a well written summary of Reformation events and personalities in a popular style. It is a book that will inspire you to further reading. My only complaint is the print type and paper. Many recent books are printed on a pale creme colored paper with ink that looks washed out, almost sepia, as if it is the end of the printing run. His book is a great introduction and overview of the Reformation. I also appreciate the positive stance the author takes verses modern interpretations of Reformation history.
