Book Recommendation: Getting the Reformation Wrong: Correcting Some Misunderstandings by James R. Payton, Jr.

Published by InterVarsity Press, I picked this book up at the IVP book table 10 days ago while I was in Atlanta at the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society. It’s a terrific read. The author is a Protestant historian who is a professor at Redeemer University College in Ontario, Canada. He offers a compelling  account of the Reformation, the history leading up to it, its chief architects, the Catholic Church’s response, and the disputes and disagreements between the different factions of the Reformation.  I highly recommend this book. You can get it via Amazon here.
