Pastor's Book for September:  The Reformation: A Very Short Introduction by Peter Marshall
 
The Reformation was a seismic event in European history, one which left an indelible mark on the modern world. In this Very Short Introduction, Peter Marshall illuminates the causes and consequences of this pivotal movement in western Christianity. The Reformation began as an argument about what Christians needed to do to be saved, but rapidly engulfed society in a series of fundamental changes.. The complex legacy of the Reformation is  assessed. Its religious fervor produced remarkable stories of sanctity and heroism, and some extraordinary artistic achievements. But violence, holy war, and martyrdom were equally its products. A paradox of the Reformation--that it intensified intolerance while establishing pluralism--is one we still wrestle with today.
 
Discussion on this book will be led by Pastor Scott Tuesday, September 19 at 11:00am and again at 7:00pm in the church Library.
