A reaction against the attitude of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance of the 14th to 17th centuries is often regarded as the cultural bridge between the Middle Ages and modern history. And the Reformation was the passionate, divisive argument that grew out of it. Bread and wine, or body and blood...infants or adults...faith alone or partial works? Catholics, Calvinists, Lutherans, Anabaptists—our present-day divisions were the front-page headlines of the Reformation.
In this third volume from the four-volume series, 2,000 Years of Christ's Power, church historian Nick Needham tells the story of one of the most exciting times within Christian history—the story of Renaissance and Reformation. He makes no attempt to somehow patch up or gloss over the division of the church today. Rather, in weaving a narrative that reveals the progression of the Reformation era, and the daring bravery of its figures, he presents an opportunity for all religious descendants of that amazing 16th century eruption to meet and interact with the authentic voices of their epoch-making ancestors in the faith. With accessible language and solid scholarship, Needham illuminates a period of history from which we have much to learn—one of the most important of these lessons being the vibrancy of people's lives and the courage with which they faced death.
