Dedicated to R.C. Sproul
This book is dedicated to Dr. R.C. Sproul of St. Andrews Chapel, Ligonier Ministries and Reformation Bible College. His Reformation Trust books and the Reformation Study Bible, which he edited, have faithfully promoted the historic, Reformed Christian Faith and been invaluable aids in discipling pastors and missionaries throughout Africa, to return to the Word of God as our ultimate authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

A RECENT ENDORSEMENT:
“If you could read only one book about the Reformation, I'd recommend The Greatest Century of Reformation by Dr. Peter Hammond. Dr. Hammond (Peter) has a unique ability to be concise yet complete, readable yet scholarly, specific yet broad-based, impassioned yet objective. In 284 pages, Peter explains the need for the Reformation (anti-Scriptural teaching in the Church), the leaders of the Reformation (Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, Knox among many others, all of whom he treats evenhandedly), and ways the Reformation changed the church and the world --and he shows how the Reformation can change you as well. His glossary of people of the Reformation, his chronology of the events of the Reformation, and his other appendices are most helpful for gaining understanding. And how could he compress all of this into 284 highly readable pages? That's Peter's unique gift. Having recently spent a week with Dr. Hammond in Wittenberg, I know how dear the Reformation is to his heart. And I will always remember singing together, "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God."
