Excellent overview for all readers
October 24, 2011
This is possibly the clearest, fairest and most scholarly of popular books treating the Reformation. MacCulloh manages to present the complicated and often misrepresented events of the European Reformation in a way that does justice to the passions of the Reformers and their successes while even-handedly describing their missteps. MacCulloh is also skilled at representing clearly what was at stake in theological disputes without simplifying them or cheapening what some outsiders to the movement have otherwise described as petty disagreements in the ivory tower. MacCulloh goes to great lengths to demonstrate that theology mattered intensely to everyday people during the Reformation, which sheds light on why the movement expanded so quickly and had such lasting impact. This is a must-read for the non-religious as well as believers.
