A riveting account of the Reformation--and why it matters today

The Reformation unfolded in the cathedrals and town squares of Europe--in Wittenberg, Worms, Rome, Geneva, and Zurich.
The story begins with the Catholic Church and its desperate need for reform. The dramatic events that followed are traced from John Wycliffe in England,
to the burning of John Hus at the stake at the Council of Constance, to the rampant sale of indulgences in the cities and towns of Germany,
to Martin Luther nailing the 
Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Castle Church in 1517, to John Calvin's reform of Geneva.

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.
And, perhaps most importantly, he shows why the actions of passionate believers five hundred years ago still matter today.



"At the Reformation's five hundredth anniversary, Erwin Lutzer reminds us not only why the Reformation is one of the most significant events in Western history
but also why it still holds important lessons for the church today.
As Lutzer demonstrates in this book, the theological convictions of Luther, Zwingli, and Calvin need to be recovered as an antidote to the watered-down gospel proclaimed from many Protestant pulpits in our day.
Every Protestant needs to recognize the incredible theological debt we owe to the Reformers. Let this book introduce you to their lives, their ministries, and, most importantly, their theology."--
R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
