Burning pyres, nuns on the run, stirring courage, and comic relief: the Protestant Reformation is a gripping tale, packed with drama. But what motivated the Reformers? And what were they really like?
The Unquenchable Flame: Discovering the Heart of the Reformation, is a lively, accessible, and fully informative introduction to the Reformation by Michael Reeves. It brings to life the movement's most colorful characters (Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin,), while also examining their ideas, showing the profound and personal relevance of Reformation thinking for today. Also included are a lengthy Reformation timeline, a map of key places in the Reformation, further reading suggestions, and, in this U.S. edition, a new foreword by 9 Marks Ministries president Mark Dever.

Review 1 for The Unquenchable Flame: Discovering the Heart of the Reformation - eBook
Great book on the Reformation & Reformers who furthered it. I am very knowledgeable on Reformation History & have read many, many Puritan Authors books and yet I still learnt facts I did not know. This is an easy reading overview of the reason for & different views of the Reformers with Catholic Theology and Papist rule. If You do not know the meaning of "Justification by Faith Alone" (ALONE!!!) or Scripture Alone (as GOD's WORD) as the Ultimate authority over ALL manmade rules/Kings/Popes/Theology then this is "A MUST READ". Simple & not Heavy, yet very Meaty. A great starting point for further study of the Reformation History to this present age.

Review 2 for The Unquenchable Flame: Discovering the Heart of the Reformation - eBook
This is a wonderful tool for those curious about church history. With very clear, concise language, this author visits the reformation in every European country affected, from Germany to Scotland, never losing sight of the true theme of the reformation, that salvation is an unmerited, free gift. An idea that rocked the world, then firmly under the authority of the Catholic Church.
