Mike Reeves' introduction to the Reformation, The Unquenchable Flame, is a rollicking good read.
Mark Dever says that it is "quite simply, the best brief introduction to the Reformation I have read."
Gerald Bray says that it "will stir the heart, refresh the soul and direct the mind towards a deeper understanding of our faith."
God willing I will be posting an interview with Mike about the book from 5th November.
You can read an extract from the book here. There is also a resource page here.
For some reason you will search in vain for it at the Westminster Bookstore, and at Monergism books.
But the good news for UK readers is that although the book is priced at £9, from 31st October until the end of November you will be able to get it from 10 of those.com for £6.20 plus only £1 for postage. £7.20 is a good offer and it will be money well spent.
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the code 'downflame', your address and phone number and they will send it to you. Celebrate Reformation Day by sending a copy to a friend.
