God’s Generals the Roaring Reformers

The Victorious Generals & Their Powerful Secrets Revealed
In an atmosphere of oppression and darkness, the reformers came with revelation from God and translations of the Bible into common language. Roberts Liardon will introduce you to six men who fought to reintroduce the beliefs and principles of the early church.
  • John Wycliffe, “The Bible Translator,” who translated the Bible from Latin into English and was martyred for his efforts.
  • John Hus, “The Father of Reform,” who longed to spread the gospel and urged people to “search the Scriptures.”
  • Martin Luther, “The Battle-ax of Reform,” the monk turned reformer who found that man is saved by grace.
  • John Calvin, “The Teaching Apostle,” who organized the church and urged people to serve God in all areas of life.
  • John Knox, “The Sword Bearer,” the rough Scottish reformer who battled queens to gain the right to preach what he believed.
  • George Fox, “The Liberator of Spirit,” the founder of the Quakers, who lived through persecution after persecution yet humbly shared the Holy Spirit with everyone he met.
As you read about these men who sacrificed everything in their fight for God, and view the many revealing photos, you will appreciate the freedom you have to worship, find encouragement for your spiritual battles, and be motivated to find biblical truth for your own life.

Review

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.
—Dr. Oral Roberts
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.
