Free Ebook: 'The Reformation' by Stephen J. Nichols

How a Monk and a Mallet Changed the World

It is difficult to overstate the ongoing importance and impact of the Reformation, even 499 years after the fact. In The Reformation: How a Monk and a Mallet Changed the World, Stephen J. Nichols takes this key period of history and presents its major players in a fresh way. From Martin Luther, a simple monk who wielded the mallet, to kings and queens, this book goes behind the scenes to uncover the human side of these larger-than-life Reformers. Along the way readers meet Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, Kings Henry VIII and Edward VI, Lady Jane Grey, Anne Bradstreet, and many others.

For those wanting to see history in its context, Nichols also provides a sampling of primary source materials. The Reformation engages readers with the foundational truths of the gospel that can never be taken for granted by the church in any age.
