In thirty short biographies, Heralds of the Reformation tells the important story of the struggle between the theological authorities and the men and women who refused to keep quiet about the sheer grace of the Gospel.
"At about the same time that Luther understood the doctrine of justification by faith taught in the Scriptures, reformers in France, Switzerland, England and elsewhere also found the Bi-ble’s message of forgiveness in Christ alone.

Richard Hannula has an eye for personal heroism and a flair for writing simply and vividly about it. Here he spotlights thirty Reformation stalwarts who gave their lives, all metaphorically, a number literally, to advance the gospel, make Christ known and save souls. From start to finish, a gripping read.
