MacCulloch_Reformation_smCarl Trueman, Professor of Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary, calls Diarmaid MacCulloch’s massive 864-page tome on the Reformation “a brilliant, scholarly beach read — well-constructed explanatory narrative history, rooted in profound and accurate scholarship, laid out in the grand epic style.”

I’m not sure about the “beach reading” part, but it sure does sound good. I just purchased it and look forward to reading it in the summer.

You can find it here.
