A theology on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation


christ presentMartin Luther posted 95 theses on the castle church door in Wittenberg and the Reformation was born.  Protestantism was born, but the real result was a changed church.  After 500 years, today’s church can still benefit from Luther’s theology and changes can come again.  “Where Christ is Present” is a group of essays edited by John Warwich Montgomery and Gene Edward Veith.

Each essay explains different aspects of the Reformation and why it is important for the church and Christians today.  Other reviewers have poured out praise for this book, claiming that it is easy to read and understand.  However, if you are a Bible scholar and extremely interested in the historical view, this may be true.  Very few of the essays kept me interested enough to read.  There were two that I could recommend as beneficial, “God’s Two Kingdoms” and “Vocation versus Narcissus!”.
