The Reformation: What You Need to Know and Why from Hendrickson is a book about the Reformation in the Lausanne Library by Michael Reeves and John Stott.

He seeks to demonstrate the answer to these questions by discussing seven Bibles (some are actually ways we use the Bible) and discusses the problems and...
