Elizabeth Stone1 Stars Out Of 5Not as expectedNovember 2, 2017Elizabeth StoneQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1A heavy duty history, but in the introduction the author speaks of "Christian foibles" and it is clear he is more focused on the faults of the Reformation than the spiritual results for the church. I bought it to prepare a series of sermons on the Reformation. I used it only sparingly, and relied on other resources for my research.
DocHutchinsIndianaAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent overview for all readersOctober 24, 2011DocHutchinsIndianaAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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.

However, if you are a born-again, Bible-believing, evangelical Christian - don't waste your money on this book.
