The Reformation: A History
by Diarmaid MacCulloch

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com
"It is impossible to understand modern Europe without understanding these sixteenth-century upheavals in Latin Christianity," he writes. "They represented the greatest fault line to appear in Christian culture since the Latin and Greek halves of the Roman Empire went their separate ways a thousand years before; they produced a house divided."

Worked my way through the first 200 pages so, hope to have most of it read by the time I return to work.

Very interesting and very well written by a man who knows his Reformation!

Refeshing to read he advises having The Bible near at hand to follow the Theological Disputations at the heart of the split in the Western Christian Church.

Don, can you give a quick review of Clancy's book, when you're done? I would like to hear some opinions about that book.

I've read it, but to be honest, it was the least exciting book (fiction) I've read from him. I like his clean cut characters and black and white world (moraly speaking) he paints, but this time the man went ove the top,IMHO.

Sorry if this is off topic. I can post my opion about the book in another thread.

Cheers!

"On Point", a book about the preparation and conduct of OIF by some researchers here at the CGSC. Lots of facts and statistics, as well as quotes from numerous sources on the whole op.

Available through the Combat Studies Institute as an online book found HERE

I'm also reading the last book in Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series for my guilty pleasure!

Is this available as PDF anywhere? I usually copy and paste online articles into word for later reading but downloading a PDF is much easier.
