The Reformation As Renewal in the Classroom

The Reformation as Renewal is written from many years of teaching the history of the Reformation at the college, masters, and Ph.D. level. If you are a professor, you should consider using The Reformation as Renewal as your textbook.

Unique features of The Reformation as Renewal:

  • When teaching courses on the Reformation, it’s difficult to give the appropriate background on the church of the late medieval period. The Reformation as Renewal can help by introducing students to the late medieval context, while also connecting the Reformers to the Church Fathers.
  • The history and theology of the Reformation is complicated, and students often get lost. This book includes sidebars throughout that will help your students understand the story, the complicated theology, and the difficult nuances of the time period.
  • The Reformation as Renewal is structured as a story, with each chapter building on the previous one.
  • This book offers not only a broad history, but also provides details of the Reformation's local contexts—such as Germany, England, and Switzerland—while showing how each fits together.
  • This book will teach your students to explore the primary sources and listen to the Reformers in their own words—their arguments and the context in which they make them. This will prepare them well for further study on the Reformation.
