Yesterday we took a break from our Remembrance Sermon Series and heard a brief overview of an important event in church history known as the Reformation. If you missed this sermon/lecture, you can check it out here. If this has peaked your interest and you want to explore further, check out these resources on the reformation.
1. Here We Stand Podcast - Desiring God Ministries has been releasing a short podcast on the reformation every day this October. They describe a different man or woman who played a significant role in this period of church history. Each podcast is about 8 minutes.
2. Five Sola Book from Zondervan - This free PDF gives a very brief explanation of the Five Solas of the Reformation.
3. Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther - This book has been around for a while and is a very accessible read about the life and theology of Martin Luther. The author weaves in a lot of his original writing in the telling of his story which can give you a taste of Luther that could lead to you reading some of Luther's own writing.
4. The Gospel Coalition - This group is made up of men and women from many different denominations who are working hard to preserve the centrality of the gospel in the life of the church around the world. They do this by providing lots of helpful resources. They draw heavily from the Reformers and are currently pumping out a LOT of great articles about the reformation. Some of those resources are the recordings from their spring conference which was in large part about the reformation.
5. Seminary Class on The Reformation - If you really want to take a deep dive into reformation history and theology, watch this seminary course by Carl Trueman who is the Chair of Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. He is an expert on the reformation, especially Luther.
