The basic truths of the Protestant faith--the things you believe and base your life on--were not always accepted and readily taught. Roberts Liardon introduces you to six of God's Generals who fought to reestablish the core beliefs and principles of the early church in the atmosphere of oppression, ignorance, and corruption that pervaded the medieval church. As you read about these roaring Reformers, men who sacrificed everything in their fight for God, you will appreciate the freedom you have to worship, find encouragement for your spiritual battles, and be motivated to find biblical truth in your own life.

|A book I'd rather borrow than buy Mar 21, 2005|
|This is an okay book, about Great Men|
The people reviewed in this book are great men of God. The book itself is kind of awkward. The author presents biographical sketches, interlaced with comments like, '...I admire the sacrifices that Hus' mother must have made, because I also had a mother and a grandmother who taught me to pray and seek the Lord from my youth. I can relate to the dedication and love that Hus' mother gave to her son. The love of a mother remains the same, no matter what generation she lives in.'
These kind of musings occur throughout the book, and distract from the content. The author also provides a lot of opinions about the characters of these people, rather than just telling their stories.
Overall, a book I'd rather borrow than buy. But I'd rather borrow a better book.
|Radical Reform Dec 9, 2003|
|I loved every bit of this book. Growing up I dreaded the long monotone teachers and memorizing the dates & the timelines in my history classes. After having a great history teacher in college I have grown to love history! It is now a hobbie of sorts for me. And in this book you can see the lives of these men from a different angle than you find in most history books. I found their lives were relatable and I was encouraged by their trials and their accomplishments!|
|Great insight Nov 20, 2003|
|Great read. Chapters highlighted key reformers in an interesting and detailed way. All this info in one volume...this book was very informative and a bargain. I found it very helpful and together with God's General's 1 a perfect edition to my library.|

|Throwing out solid doctrine for mysticism and comparing themselves with Luther, Calvin and Knox! WOW - arrogant and stupid all in one! |
I am always amazed when pastors turn historians. It nearly always results in a warped view of history and a decidedly biased presentation of fact.
When you deal with Luther, Calvin, Knox, Zwingli and the sort you should NEVER leave out that the REFORMATION started in each Country differently and that there were secret bible readings at Cambridge in England in 1508 - LONG before Luther had had it with Tetzel and his selling "escapes from purgatory." Luther never meant to start a new denomination or split. The Catholic Pope handled it the wrong way (as he did nearly everything he touched). Finally, how do you leave out Elizabeth I, QUeen of England?
Despite her obvious advantage politically to supporting the "new religion," as it was called. Reading her poetry will tell you that she had a deep grasp on the theology of Fatih, Grace and Justification.
This presentation is flawed (as is most church historical information) and leaves out much of the character of these individuals. I am a graduate student of Music History and Musicologists do the same thing. However, truth is truth and this book deines some historical truth and fails to look at others. Its just kind of a bit of fluff.
