Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Reformation and why it occurred, then pay attention.... 

Most of us have probably heard the story of how a German monk named Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the door of a church. These Ninety-five Theses were essentially ninety-five complaints lodged against the Catholic Church. In those days, the Catholic Church was the big guy on the block when it came to religion. Those who dared question Catholic doctrine were inevitably said to be in error, and if they did not immediately correct their “errors”, they would be labeled heretics. And it wasn’t that good to be a heretic in those days since it usually meant a one-way ticket to getting burned at the stake. 

The Catholic Church had kept its solid grip on church dogma for well over a thousand years, yet Martin Luther dared to stand up and raise his voice in objection. Martin Luther not only managed to survive his stab at religious dissidence but also sparked a larger movement in which many more people began to protest what they perceived as abuses of the Catholic Church.

This audiobook follows the initial outburst of reformatory thought, first carried forth by Martin Luther and other primary reformers, and then goes on to follow the life and work of notable Protestants such as John Calvin and Ulrich Zwingli. These bold reformers dared to question the status quo, and they forever changed the world with their protestations. 

This is the history of the Reformation. 

In this audiobook, you will discover: 

  • The causes of the Reformation
  • The key participants
  • The conflicts that occurred
  • The religious groups that were formed
  • And more

Defends doctrine of purgatory

Good historical overview of the Reformation, yet strangely defends the doctrine of some understanding of purgatory rather than just explaining how it came to be believed.
