Throughout the Christian lands of Europe, there was darkness. Not a physical darkness, but a spiritual one. For many years, the clarity of God’s grace given through Jesus Christ had dimmed. But in those dark times, light dawned. Brave individuals challenged long–held teachings that had drifted from Scripture. Martin Luther, John Calvin, and Thomas Cranmer led movements of reformation in their nations, calling their followers to the clear teaching of the Bible, to Christ, to faith, to grace, to live to the glory of God.
Luke H. Davis

An ordained priest in the Anglican Church in North America, Luke lives with his wife, Christi, and their family in St. Charles, Missouri.
The Reformation was a pivotal point in church history, and Davis introduces us to the people who were there. This book is rich in characters and theology, and is an enlightening read for teens.

An excellent introduction!
