Looking to build your personal or family library with some good Reformation resources this time of year? This is a good time to do so, and especially this week.
First, Ligonier Ministries is having a special on Reformation resources each day this week, starting today. Here is the little blurb that goes with the week’s specials:
October 31, 2016, will mark the 499th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. To celebrate, during “Reformation Week” we will be sharing various resource offers. Stay tuned to the blog each day this week for the latest Reformation Week links to redeem these offers.
Now follow this link to get at these deals – and be sure to check back each day. Resource Offers: Reformation Week 2016
Second, Tim Challies called attention to some good Kindle deals on Reformation titles this morning. You will want to watch his site this week as well. Here are a few from his list along with a link to his site.
Third, in children’s books, Reformation Heritage Books has just released the latest title in their “Christian Biographies for Young Readers” series, and it is another fine one from the pen of Simonetta Carr, this time on Martin Luther. Here is the publisher’s description and table of contents ($14 for hardcover, illustrated):
Five hundred years ago, a monk named Martin Luther wrote ninety-five questions, hoping to start a discussion about sin and repentance at the University of Wittenberg in Germany. In a few months those questions had stirred the nation; a few years later, the continent. Today we know that those questions changed the course of both the Western church and world history. In this volume for children, Simonetta Carr tells the compelling story of this father of the Protestant Reformation, tracing his quest for peace with God, his lifelong heroic stand for God’s truth, and his family life and numerous accomplishments. The Reformer’s greatest accomplishment, she writes, “has been his uncompromising emphasis on the free promise of the gospel.”
Table of Contents:
1. From Law Student to Monk
2. Looking for Peace with God
3. A Powerful List
4. A Reluctant Rebel
5. Starting a Reformation
6. Raising a Family
7. Ready to Die in the Lord

If you don’t have Carr’s title on John Calvin from this series, now would be a good time to add that one too (also $14).
I might also add that Monergism.com has a large Reformation section with a wide variety of resources – articles, mp3s, even pictures. It is worth your time to browse there and find something of interest. And, if I haven’t mentioned this lately, be sure to check out their free ebook section, in alphabetical order by author (all 365 of them!).
