"Whilst the Calvinistic doctrines were the language of our pulpits as well as of our Articles, the Reformation made a swift and extensive progress. But ever since our Articles and our pulpits have been at variance, the Reformation has been at a stand.” Augustus Montague Toplady
This book shows how God has used the Reformed gospel of ‘grace alone’ to revitalise churches riddled with immorality and flagging in meaning and purpose. With a focus on hymn-writer and theologian Augustus Toplady, it retells the story of Reformation and Revival for a new generation looking to draw strength from its roots.
“Lee Gatiss does a fine job of reminding his church that Latitudinarianism, Anglo-Catholicism, Liberalism, and theologically lightweight evangelicalism are not the only traditions which can lay claim to being Anglican.” Carl Trueman, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
“Readers will find this study at once encouraging and challenging. It is a strong example of the way in which historical writing can be both responsible and transparently useful for the church today.” Garry Williams, The John Owen Centre, London
