Michael Reeves tells the story of the Reformation in a fast-paced style. John Stott (text updated with permission) takes the story forward, looking at the essence of the evangelical faith, and our responsibility now to hold it fast, and to pass it on. In an Appendix, Alan Purser asks us to re-examine what Jesus was praying for in John 17, when he asked his Father that the church `may be one'. This passage has been misunderstood and mis-preached for centuries. The book, carefully footnoted, includes a Timeline, running from the earliest `heretik' martyr in Scotland in 1407 to the production of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. `We have the "precious and eternal gospel" passed down to us through the courage of the Reformers', said the book's Editor, Julia Cameron. `This modest volume gives readers an easy grasp of the racy history of events in Europe. More than that, it shows why we need to know about the Reformation now.'

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I don't know of a better brief introduction to the Reformation and its continuing importance today. It provides an ideal opportunity in this anniversary year for Christians both to remember the past and to reflect on how we can build on it into the future." -- Vaughan Roberts, Rector, * St Ebbe's Church, Oxford and Lausanne plenary speaker *
"This packs a punch way beyond its size, and is far more than just an appetizer. Alan Purser's Appendix on one of the most misused passages of Scripture, John 17, is worth the price alone! " -- David Robertson * Minister at St Peter's Church, Dundee and blogger at the weeflea *
"This book is guaranteed to put a new spring in the step of every evangelical. It takes us back to our roots, and shows us how the apostolic gospel of Jesus Christ can change the world." -- John Benton * Editor of Evangelicals Now *
