This book will revive the Protestant Reformation to restore the true biblical Messianic faith. It will sweep away the dust of Roman destruction and sort through the facts to get closer to the truth. ''Past church reformers would think it odd that a man of Jewish descent is attempting to sit in their seat,'' says the author Lang.

Tell us a little about yourself. Reviving the Reformation is written by an author who is conservative but sees Christianity and Judaism through a different lens than most. Daniel Lang is the son of a nominally religious Jewish father and a devout Gentile Christian mother—a surgeon and nurse who met at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. His mother was a graduate of Moody Bible Institute and had hoped to be a missionary in a third world country before love and World War II redirected her life. The author was raised in a small Midwestern town. He attended Hebrew school and was bar mitzvahed in the town’s only (conservative) synagogue. After being introduced to the messianic prophecies in high school, he saw that Yeshua filled the shoes of the expected Jewish Messiah. Dan is a physician who has been actively working as a primary care internist for thirty years.
What was your motivation behind this project? Daniel Lang believes his parents’ mixed Jewish and Christian backgrounds became the incubator of a unique perspective, which culminated in the writing of Reviving the Reformation. This book is over forty years in the making. As an editor of ideas, Dan has tried to weave together a broad range of Jewish and Christian concepts, conservative and liberal, in an attempt to reconstruct the first-century Messianic faith.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? With biblical faith fading fast in Western culture, now is the time to restore the truth by reviving the Reformation. Although his voice is small, the author’s prayer is that this book will be one of the sparks that will ignite a fire.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther kicked off the Protestant Reformation. When the Jewish community failed to accept Luther’s reformed version of Catholicism, he turned against them toward the end of his life. Martin Luther, with his limited understanding and prejudice, could not have reformed the Catholic Church all the way back to the original Jewish Messianic faith of the first century. Now, 500 years later, an author of Jewish descent, Dr. Daniel Lang, boldly attempts to sit in the seat of past reformers. Reviving the Reformation rediscovers the real first-century Messianic faith lost to the modern world. It travels backward to recover the beliefs and practices of the very first Jewish believers in Jerusalem – a community which would have trouble recognizing modern, traditional Christianity as its offspring. Though written from a conservative point of view, this book does not often follow the traditional Christian or Jewish party lines. Reviving the Reformation explores questions – and offers some powerful answers – that some dare not ask.
