Reformation 500th Anniversary
The Reformation is one of the most important events in human history. It was the catalyst that started Bible translation into the English language – which is something we hear at Bible Buying Guide appreciate and pray that it continues to spread across the world. The King James is a Reformation-era translation that’s still one of the most popular, and important, translations available today.
Here’s a look at some of our favorite Bibles and products that we’ve reviewed that commemorate the Reformation.
The Reformation: What You Need to Know and Why
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. It’s a short book at 100 pages and small enough to fit into a pocket, but it gives an excellent overview of the key events and people of the Reformation.
The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible
The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible is a study Bible that focuses on key doctrinal information from the Puritan/Reformed point of view. The layout is a modern design that separates the text from the study material beautifully. The edition I’m reviewing was produced by Jongbloed, with goatskin leather and elegant paper. Features KJV Black Goatskin Edge lined Leather liner Black letter 8 font Art gilt edges Two ribbons Presentation page Family records pages Study notes Family devotions Articles Creeds Concordance Maps 9.75″ x 6.75″ x 1.75″ Printed by Jongbloed.
Reformation Reference Bible
The Westminster has updated words in the margins, 200,000 cross references, elegant setting, etc. The Westminster KJV Reference Bible has been made into a compact edition (33% smaller in overall footprint). The Reformation Commemorative Edition has several pages about the Reformation and the Bibles that came from it. These pages are printed on the heavy card stock in the front and takes the place of the Scripture pages in the regular edition. It’s currently still available in hard cover.
Christian History Made Easy
Christian History Made Easy is a 12-session DVD-based study series that covers the essentials on Church history. The Complete Kit edition includes the DVD’s, PowerPoint presentation with PDF files, Leader Guide, Participant Guide, and Reference Handbook, making the Complete Kit an excellent choice for both individuals and small groups. The DVD sessions and the teaching sessions combine to make well over 12 hours of study.
That’s a quick look at a few of the Bibles, books, and DVD’s we’ve reviewed that commemorate the Reformation. I can easily recommend all of these products.
