In writing this sequel to his powerful book, God’s Generals
, Roberts has done a remarkable job of stimulating our faith to believe God to do the seeming impossible by compiling explicit and authentic information about some of God’s choice leaders. These men have laid a foundation
on which we are able to build.
The Roaring Reformers is a well-named book about men who truly fit the title. They were average men who answered the call of God to make a difference in the lives of those in their generation. In reading this, we are faced with the question, Does God expect less of us than He did of them?
Is it really important to read about revivals of the past and those whom God used to birth them? You will think so as you read of the successes and failures—the strengths and weaknesses—of the ministers and of the acceptance and denial of the people in witnessing the supernatural demonstration of God in the meetings. Your faith will grow with your awareness that God uses whom He wills. You will discover new flames of passion for the lost and find fresh desire to be a powerful witness of Christ.

Roberts Liardon, a pioneering young preacher, who has fought his own demons, sometimes slipping but always fighting back, has known all his life that someday he would capture the spirit and faith of the men of God— Wycliffe, Hus, Luther, Knox, Calvin, and Fox—who broke the back of the religious system of the dark ages, bringing us the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Nazareth in its purest form: Man is saved by grace, not of works, lest any man should boast. A monumental work to stir men’s souls.

Roberts Liardon is an excellent student and author on church history. His book on Reformers will shed much light on the people God used and the price they paid for the liberty we freely enjoy.
