The Reformation comes alive in this fascinating study of its history.
In 55 messages, Joe Morecraft covers the most important people and events of the Reformation. Beginning with the Westminster Confession and ending with the lives of many of the Westminster Divines, he covers the Scottish Covenanters, John Calvin, John Knox, Oliver Cromwell as well as some of the Reformation's darkest villains like Bloody Mary and King James I.
This series is a must listen for any serious student of church history as well as those who just love the stories of the faithful men and women who worked, many of them suffering great persecution, to return the Church to faithfulness.
Worth hearing all of these I have been listening to this series for some time, but this one was so intriguing I just had to call attention to it. What a sorry thing is wrought by ambition. The competition for the throne, the suppression of the greatest teaching since the apostles - i.e. the Puritans - in unrighteousness... Great background information as I prepare a Sunday School on the Puritans. Doubtless the persecutions these godly men faced added to their ability to dissect the Christian heart as has hardly been equaled.

Great Sermon! This was a powerful message for the Church today. Morecraft got emotional (and so would I) when he got to the Huguenot massacre.
