Recommended Books on the Five Solas, Church History and Reformed Theology

Recommended Books on the Five Solas, Church History, and Reformed Theology This season at Servants of Grace, we’ve been considering the Five Solas and how we need Reformation inside the local Church. In our day, many believe that truth is all about how we feel, or dismiss the place of doctrine in the Christian Life. And yet some even believe they can live the Christian life without being part of the Church. With this issue of Theology of Life, we hope that readers grew to love the Five Solas and learn the need for Reformation in the Church. If you’ve found this subject interesting and want to study the issue further, please check out the recommended reading list below. These books are at the top of this genre in both excellence and readability.

500 Years of the Reformation Why We Need Revival and Reformation Today The Reformation in the 16th century is long known as a religious renewal movement, which we refer to today as the Protestant Reformation. This movement is known to have changed the course of Western civilization, but what is often not understood about this event is that no one single man caused it. For example, it didn’t begin with Martin Luther (1483-1546) when he posted his Ninety-Five Theses on the church doors of Wittenberg on October 31st, 1517. Luther’s “Tower Experience” is said to be where he came...

Is Calvinism Good for the Church?

500 Years of the Reformation Why We Need Revival and Reformation Today It’s an innocent question at first, “Is Calvinism good for the church?” Some people will not be alarmed by that question in any way, shape, or form. Others will think that this question doesn’t need to be asked at all. To them, Calvinism is a disease, a plague, a cancer that needs to be opposed with all their energy. Such people view Calvinism as opposed to the gospel, the Church, the Great Commission, and Biblical Christianity. Entire movements in entire denominations are focused to this end, on...
