Description
After beginning with some personal observations the book goes through the principles that shaped the Protestant Reformation to show how a great deal of what is called Protestantism and Evangelicalism today no longer deserves the name. It then calls the church to reformation based on the foundational truth of the gospel.

Summary
After 500 years since what we call the Protestant Reformation this book is about whether or not the church has remained true to the principles that shaped that Reformation, and calls it to remember and focus on the vital truths of the gospel.

Excerpt
The time has come to separate ourselves from those who are even now beginning to disown the reformation as overly divisive, and who are starting to attack the character of the reformers without appreciating how God has used them. Many are those who are quick to find whatever flaws they can find in the reformers in order to crucify them and their ministries. In doing this they strain out gnats while they swallow a camel. They forget that these reformers put their lives at risk, and they forget that everyone prior to Martin Luther who advocated for reform was tortured, killed, or imprisoned, or a combination of these things. They forget about the flow of German money from peasants’ purses going to Italy to build Saint Peter’s Basilica. They forget how difficult it was to have sound judgment at a time when papal tyranny was at its height. They forget that Martin Luther decided to stay in Wittenberg (in 1527) when the plague struck in order to give encouragement to those affected in the hour of death while the elector ordered others to flee to Jena for refuge. They forget that at one time the pope ordered entire villages of Jews to be wiped out, at another time he ordered an entire city of Albigensians to be wiped out, and that for many centuries the inquisitions tortured, imprisoned or killed anyone who did not submit to popery. They forget about the Huguenots who were slaughtered throughout France. They no longer hear the cries of the Waldensians as they are thrown off of the edge of a cliff or burned alive in a cave. They no longer hear the weeping nor feel compassion for the tears of families who have been separated from their children because they have been kidnapped from them, never to see them again. I have never heard of a more cruel persecution against the church than what has happened under the tyranny of the pope. Come forward then, all you critics of the reformers, and tell me if you are so arrogant as to think that you would have done better if you would have been in the same situation. Would you have had the courage to stand boldly for the truth of the gospel as Luther did at the Diet of Worms while everyone else was proclaiming that death was just around the corner? Would you have had the courage to openly embrace the gospel as John Calvin did, knowing that it would mean living the rest of your life in exile, never to see your home country again? Would you have had the courage to pray with John Knox, “Give me Scotland or else I die”? Would you have had the boldness to translate the Scriptures as William Tyndale did, knowing that it would cost you your life? Would you have had the courage to return from Geneva to your home country in France or Italy to proclaim the gospel as many protestant missionaries did, to meet the flames of death or the torture chambers of the inquisitions? Would you have stood firm in your faith knowing that plots were being devised to assassinate you for it, and that the pope was rallying his armies against you, as queen Elizabeth the first did? Go ahead and criticize the reformers, but at least appreciate and recognize the amazing things God has done through such frail men and women.
