Publisher's Summary

This listenable, accessible narrative story of the Protestant Reformation is the fifth volume of the popular series with Westminster John Knox Press intended for "armchair theologians".A solid grounding in the history of the Reformation and its leading ideas, and the inclusion of "Questions for Discussion" and "Suggestions for Further Reading" make this book excellent for study groups, or as a refresher "course" for students - and even as a good starting point for those interested in the larger discipline of church history.

Sunshine Shines Brightly!

Where does The Reformation for Armchair Theologians rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best books on the Reformation I've ever listened to/read. There are many good ones that go deeper into depth, but if you want a really great overall summary, this is the book I would recommend. I study the Reformation at a very deep level, but I was very surprised at how well written and correct the history is!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Reformation for Armchair Theologians?

Since this in non fiction, there's not a fictional character, but Luther was highlighted very well and, well all of them so it's hard to choose.

Have you listened to any of Kate Reading’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. This is the first one. Kate is an AMAZING narrator. She's got a beautiful, captivating voice and she's an intelligent narrator. I was impressed by her as there were names and places that are foreign to the English language and her pronunciation of these names and places were spot on. Her diction is clear and she keeps the energy lively and when there's an amusing moment, Kate nails it!!! As a narrator myself, I am really critical of other narrators because I do long form narration myself. She held my attention and I learned a lot from her. She's one of the finest female book narrators I've ever heard! Great job!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, it was just simply....wonderful.

Any additional comments?

I hope Mr. Sunshine writes more books like this and uses Kate as his narrator. They make a fine duo!

- Lauren Holladay "I love reading/listening to books! Favs are by Reformed authors. I'm always looking for good biographies, and accurate Church history."

Excellent treatment of an important era.

I loved Sunshine's treatment of the theology involved. But I got bogged down in all of the politics and wars.
