A great read!, 7 Aug 2009
I have just finished reading The Unquenchable Flame and I think it is brilliant. It is clearly very well researched, but that work is not held out for our admiration. Rather the book, in its scope, clear and easy style and honesty, holds out the Jesus of the Reformers and the Bible for our admiration.
The Reformers are not presented as great men, but as men freely justified by a great Lord and Saviour. I learnt lots from this book, but also had my heart warmed towards Jesus Christ and my easy, low-cost service of Christ questioned. This is a book about the Reformation, but also a book about us and our times, because Jesus has not changed and his offer of forgiveness and righteousness to sinful men and women. I would recommend this as a great introduction to the Reformation, but also as a great read if you know the territory already.
