    We have two young children who attend public school. This places the responsibility of educating them about historyas it pertains to our faithsquarely on our shoulders. Given that 2017 marks the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation, Ive been searching for resources to help me introduce our children to the who and why of this pivotal time in church history. Reformation ABCs does this in a clear, concise, and kid-friendly manner.

    In addition to Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli, brief biographies of Kirk, Vermigli, Ussher, and other lesser-known individuals are recounted alphabetically. By including people and places from various corners of Europe, the author draws attention to the scope of the Protestant Reformation. Furthermore, he makes a point of telling kids its not over: You are the next Reformer.

    The team of Stephen J. Nichols and Ned Bustard are adept at engaging a young readership. Nichols accomplishes this by including the choicest, most fascinating, historical details in each of his single page summaries. Bustard complements his writing with a visually appealing blend of buggy-eyed illustrations, photography, and humor. While I initially balked at the lack of dates in the body of the text, I now see how the colorful timeline on the last page is more effective at depicting how the lives of the Reformers overlapped.

    One final note to parents: do not be deceived by the simplicity of the title. This is a complex book, well-suited for independent readers with approximately a 3rd grade reading level. Children will encounter full pages of text, with words and terminology which may be unfamiliar to them (e.g., nonconformists, persecution, martyr, commemorate). For this reason, I would advise parents do an initial read through with their child to provide any needed clarification.

    I received a free copy of this book from Crossway for the purpose of this review. A favorable review was not required of me and all opinions expressed are my own.
