In 1517, a German monk nailed a poster to the door of a church, disputing key doctrines taught by the Roman Catholic Church in that day. This moment set in motion a movement that changed the entire trajectory of church history. But do the Reformers still have something to teach us half a century later?
With a rich combination of historical theology and passionate exegetical argument, Michael Reeves and Tim Chester's Why the Reformation Still Matters offers readers, from the pastor to the layperson, an accessible guidebook that not only answers many of the same key questions raised by the Reformers, but also demonstrates that those questions, and the Reformers themselves, are vital conversation partners for our churches today.

A N5 Stars Out Of 5Extremely helpfulOctober 28, 2016A NQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you want to understand the heart of the reformation this book is for you. Reeves and Chester give a very brief history of people and events and then spell out what was so crucial about the Reformation and the differences between Catholic theology and Protestant theology even where the same words are used but mean different things. And they explain why these things matter, even today. It is an engaging read. It is also helpful to see the differences among protestants as they were forming their views and bringing these things to the attention to the wider church. This book is probably the best on the market for getting a crash course on the meaning of the Reformation. Other books will give you fuller histories of events and people but this one cuts right to the heart of the matter.
