According to Google, 500 years ago the English invented the Theodolite, William Caxton starting the printing of books and posters, and some guy called Drake sailed around the world. But more importantly, on 31 October 1517 Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the Wittenburg Church door.
The Unquenchable Flame records this rediscovery of grace in the Reformation. If you have not heard about the Reformation, I encourage you to read this book. It reminded me of the true beauty and simplicity in the good news of the gospel: grace alone by faith alone. And it reminded me that an altered gospel is no gospel at all and that, like the reformers, we are to not only cherish but also aggressively defend this great news. It’s an easy and informative read.
