Families will be able to see God’s hand in the Reformation and how he used it to shape his people’s understanding of his Word.
Reformation ABCs is a fun way for kids to learn about the places, things, events, people, books, and ideas that shaped this pivotal time in church history. Through whimsical illustrations and engaging storytelling, this book teaches kids that even though the Reformation occurred five hundred years ago, it isn’t just about people and places in the past. The Reformers’ fight to reclaim the gospel is still relevant today.
“Everyone loves stories, accounts of great adventures, heroes risking all for a great cause. And every story, at its best, reflects the one great story, and the one great hero, Jesus of Nazareth. The Reformation is the true adventure story of how brave men and women, rightly believing the story to be true, fought to tell Jesus’s story.” — R. C. Sproul
