To Germany and walk in the footsteps of Martin Luther and see the doors where he nailed his ninety-five theses, the church where he preached every week and Wittenberg Univeristy where he taught. To the Reformation Monument in Geneva, Switzerland, and gaze upon the trusty features of Zwingli, Beza and Calvin whose witness for truth changed whole nations. And in England to admire the bravery and determination of John Wycliffe and William Tyndale whose combined vision put the word of God into the mother tongue of their fellow countrymen.

Review 1 for The Spreading Flame Part 1: Comes the Dawn, DVD
Ok, at best
Date:March 29, 2013
This documentary is ok, at best. I am a big fan of church history and read many books on the people and events of the past. I seriously doubt the intent of the producers of this video was to make church history boring, but they largely succeeded nevertheless! The narrater, especially has a voice that will put you to sleep. Even worse than that, he seeminly attempts to narrate in character as a Shakespearean actor. It is way over the top. As my wife and I watched the video, we would often look at each other and laugh at the theatrical performance of the narrator. It was a huge distraction from the content of the video. There are far better video presentations on this subject. Overall, I was disappointed.

Review 2 for The Spreading Flame Part 1: Comes the Dawn, DVD

The entire set is great for the person who wants to learn reformation history but does not want to spend hours reading tomes. These are not costume videos. The people are professors and preachers. Some beautiful scenery is also included.

Review 3 for The Spreading Flame Part 1: Comes the Dawn, DVD
I am a Lutheran . I ordered this series for my own information. I found it to be a very good introduction to the reformers and Bible translaters. We Lutherans often get the idea that Luther was the only one who protested. This series was very enlightening for me. Oh, what these people went through to get the Gospel to the people.
