Christians don’t know church history.
Want proof? A woman approached me after a sermon on Sunday morning around 15 years ago. She wanted to talk about a point I had made, which is always encouraging. She was especially interested in the start of the Reformation. Great! “You know, I had no idea that Martin Luther King did so much over there in addition to all the stuff he did here. That’s amazing!”
Indeed. Like I said, Christians don’t know church history.
The good news is, that’s something we can easily remedy, and the approaching 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 provides a perfect opportunity! For the good of the church and the glory of God, I’m very pleased to introduce the latest resource from ChurchWorksMedia: Gospel Meditations on the Reformation. Joe Tyrpak and I are joined in this project by church historian Carl Trueman and theologian Andy Naselli. The little book consists of 31 daily Bible studies, each illustrated by scenes from Reformation history. I am confident they will inform the mind and warm the heart.
Here’s what others are saying about Gospel Meditations on the Reformation:
“Theologically rich, thoughtful, and historically rooted devotionals are a rare treat. This volume, which unfolds the theological commitments and pastoral heart of the Reformers, is a unique and enormously helpful devotional. As the Reformers reminded us, sound doctrine must always lead to true worship. My hope is that this devotional leads many Christians to encounter biblical truth in a fresh way.”
R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“What a great idea--a month of brief, daily devotional readings on the important themes of the Protestant Reformation! A delightful read for every Christian and a joy to recommend!”
Fred Zaspel, pastor of Reformed Baptist Church of Franconia, Pennsylvania, executive editor of Books At a Glance, and adjunct professor of Christian Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
We are now taking pre-orders for the book, which will ship on December 12, 2016. There are quantity discounts, making this a great gift for entire churches and a great way to begin 2017.
Soli Deo Gloria!
