Synopses & Reviews
The Protestant Reformation comes to life through these spiritual stories of the individuals who led the reform movements. In making history come alive, Stein shows that the spiritual issues of that day are equally contemporary and relevant today.
This authoritative and comprehensive volume describes the world of the Reformation. Stein devotes one chapter to each of these leading characters: Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, Menno Simons, and Thomas Cranmer. Each chapter includes a prayer or a hymn written by the reformer. A time line and map of Europe help readers understand the issues by showing where and when the events took place. Discussion questions for each chapter make this a valuable study for adult groups.
Offering insights for contemporary Christian discipleship, Stein shows readers how the cloud of witnesses referred to in the book of Hebrews spans the centuries from the Bible to the present.
