Happy Reformation Day! [Quiz + Book Recommendations]

Today marks a momentous day in Church history—its 503rd anniversary, to be exact. Though eclipsed by other holidays, Reformation Day deserves an observance. How much do you know about it?

Whether you ace the quiz or miss a few questions, here are three recommendations to learn more . . . 

If you’re new to studying the Reformation

For less than the cost of a big bag of candy, you can sit down with The Beauty & Glory of the Reformation to explore reformers’ lives and find out more about their commitment to the gospel. You’ll read why there was a Reformation, discover lesser-known reformers, and see how practical lessons from the Reformation apply today. 

If you want to know more about the Reformation’s theological background

Doing Theology with the Reformers immerses readers in the world of Reformation theology. It provides a historical companion to the Reformation Commentary on Scripture, examines the range of theological debates in the Reformation, and explores the historic context of the Reformation era.

 

 

 

If you want to explore historical and current Reformation theology

In Reformation Theology: A Systematic Summary, Matthew Barrett has brought together a team of expert theologians and historians writing on key doctrines taught and defended by the Reformers centuries ago. The volume exhorts Christians to learn from our spiritual forebears and hold fast to sound doctrine rooted in the Bible and passed on from generation to generation.

There you have it! If you’re hungry for even more Reformation-related resources after you take the quiz, check out Reading Scripture with the Reformers, Worshiping with the Reformers, and the 194-volume, five-star Reformed Commentary Bundle.
