Coming Soon from B&H Academic - The Unquenchable Flame

I met with our B&H Publishing Group rep this week and there several books coming out that I'm interested in seeing. The first one I want to tell you about is the one that will have the most appeal to my immediate market--Grand Rapids.  It is The Unquenchable Flame: Discovering the Heart of the Reformation by Michael Reeves with a forward by Mark Dever.  The catalog description follows:
"Burning pyres, nuns on the run, stirring courage, and comic relief: the Protestant Reformation is a gripping tale, packed with drama. But what motivated the Reformers? And what were they really like?"
"The Unquenchable Flame, a lively, accessible, and fully informative introduction to the Reformation by Michael Reeves, brings to life the movement’s most colorful characters (Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, The Puritans, etc.), examines their ideas, and shows the profound and personal relevance of Reformation thinking for today."
"Chapter titles include "Going Medieval on Religion: The Background to the Reformation," "God's Volcano: Martin Luther," "Soldiers, Sausage, and Revolution: Ulrich Zwingli and the Radical Reformers," "After Darkness, Light: John Calvin," "Burning Passion: The Reformation in Britain," "Reforming the Reformation: The Puritans," and "Is the Reformation Over?""
Michael Reeves is theological advisor for Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF), a charity evangelism in higher education throughout the United Kingdom.  He was previously associate minister at All Souls Church, Langham Place and holds a doctorate in systematic theology from King's College London. 

The book was first published by Inter-Varsity Press of England in 2009.  Look for it this coming April.  It is a paperback with 208 pages and will retail for $14.99.
