Product Description

A reaction against the attitude of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance of the 14th to 17th centuries is often regarded as the cultural bridge between the Middle Ages and modern history. And the Reformation was the passionate, divisive argument that grew out of it. Bread and wine, or body and blood...infants or adults...faith alone or partial works? Catholics, Calvinists, Lutherans, Anabaptists—our present-day divisions were the front-page headlines of the Reformation.

In this third volume from the four-volume series, 2,000 Years of Christ's Power, church historian Nick Needham tells the story of one of the most exciting times within Christian history—the story of Renaissance and Reformation. He makes no attempt to somehow patch up or gloss over the division of the church today. Rather, in weaving a narrative that reveals the progression of the Reformation era, and the daring bravery of its figures, he presents an opportunity for all religious descendants of that amazing 16th century eruption to meet and interact with the authentic voices of their epoch-making ancestors in the faith. With accessible language and solid scholarship, Needham illuminates a period of history from which we have much to learn—one of the most important of these lessons being the vibrancy of people's lives and the courage with which they faced death.

Publisher's Description

The Renaissance was a reaction against the attitude of the Middle Ages. And the Reformation was the passionate, divisive argument that grew out of it. Catholics, Calvinists, Lutherans, Anabaptists - our present-day divisions were the front-page headlines of the Reformation. Volume three of 2,000 Years of Christ's Power, in showing the progression of the Reformation era, and the daring bravery of its figures, presents a period of history from which there are many lessons to be learnt - not least of all, the vibrancy of people's lives and the courage with which they faced death.

Editorial Reviews

What makes the books so useful is that in a non-technical (but not simplistic) way, they bring out the main story line of the history of the church through the centuries. But in addition, and most helpfully, each chapter concludes with a selection of writings (translated of course!) from people discussed in the chapter. This means that we are not only told what certain people believed, but we are able to read some of their actual writings -- and this is often extremely illuminating.

It is a brave historian who tackles the extremely challenging task of writing the 2,000-year history of the Church. Well, Nick Needham has more than risen to the challenge. This eagerly-awaited fourth volume has been well worth the wait and, not to pressure our brother scholar, we now look forward to the concluding volume!

For many years now I have said: if you want a thorough, learned but accessible and well-written history of the church, read Nick Needham's 2,000 Years of Christ's Power. Now, with the fourth volume finally available, Christians have an excellent resource for improving their knowledge of the history of their faith. Highly recommended.

Nick Needham's volumes on church history explain everything that someone new to the subject might not understand. At the same time, they achieve a depth of detail to interest those who already know something of the subject. We use them as standard texts at LTS and look forward eagerly to forthcoming volumes.
