Abstract:

As easy to understand history of the Reformation and how it created modern Protestantism.-- Excellent use of The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" format to take a complex historical event and give it meaning to members of any denomination. -- Author has a proven track record with this series as co-author of The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to the Bible, and brings a credible name and approach to Christian booksellers and readers. -- No competition in the marketplace, and readers are asking for this book! Many Protestants today -- whether Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, or Episcopalian -- have never understood how or why each has different traditions and beliefs. Historically, each denomination comes from the same beginnings -- the Reformation. Authors Bell and Sumner take readers on a journey from Martin Luther's time through medieval Europe, Old England, colonial American to today, explaining not only big schisms (like the break with Rome) but smaller ones (like John Wesley's break from the Anglican church to form modern Methodism.) Covering everything from Henry VIII's agenda to the North American Great Awakening, The Complete Idiot's Guide "RM" to the Reformation and Protestantism puts everything in perspective.
