What’s the story and significance of the Reformation? Many evangelicals think we have no need to rehash the issues that divided the church in the sixteenth century. In prose that captivates as it informs, Erwin W. Lutzer captures the people, places, and big ideas that fueled the Reformation. He explains its lasting influence on the church and Western civilization. God used imperfect people to carry the Gospel onward. And, perhaps most importantly, he shows why the actions of passionate believers five hundred years ago still matter today.
