Reeves, Michael. The Unquenchable Flame: Discovering the Heart of the Reformation.
The Unquenchable Flame is a brief introduction to the Reformation. Dr. Reeves begins by outlining the circumstances that led up to the Reformation, and then he walks through the lives and ministries of Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, and John Calvin. He also examines the English Reformation, comparing and contrasting it with the continental and magisterial Reformation that preceded it.
The common thread running through all these different men from different countries in different decades and different political situations is this: God’s Word prevails. Over and over again, mere men insisted on getting as many people as possible as much of the Bible as possible, and the world was changed as a result.
If you’re interested in learning more about the Reformation and the main figures involved in it, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better place to start than this. You’ll learn, you’ll laugh, you’ll be amazed, and you’ll be encouraged. This is a tremendous book, and it’s an incredibly applicable read for our times today.
