The Reformation: How a Monk and a Mallet Changed the World

1581348290Book Review: The Reformation: How a Monk and a Mallet Changed the World, by Stephen j. Nichols

Its a delightful and delicious book on the Reformation. You know it has to be when the chapter titles include “Some middle-aged men and a Sausage Supper” a title [which influenced my 2006 Reformation post “A Little Scottish Oats with Your Bratwurst?”. Its not a long or comprehensive book but its tight, thoughtful, it covers a lot of important ground, and it pleasantly addressed the issues i brought with me when i opened the first page. I highly recommend it. Well done!


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)

  • Thanks a lot for doing these reviews, they are quite helpful. Especially for those of us trying to wade through all of the things we would like to read through. I own most of these titles but haven’t gotten through them. Your insights are helping to provide a starting point.
