From the Back Cover

The Victorious Generals And Their Powerful Secrets Revealed In an atmosphere of oppression and darkness, the Reformers came with revelation from God and translations of the Bible into common language. Roberts Liardon will introduce you to six men who fought to reintroduce the beliefs and principles of the early church. You'll journey with them through their periods of enlightenment and their periods of persecution. As you read about these men who sacrificed everything in their fight for God, and view the many revealing photos, you will appreciate the freedom you have to worship, find encouragement for your spiritual battles, and be motivated to find biblical truth for your own life. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Customer Reviews

It's an easy and exciting book to read and I enjoyed it immensely.
Rapurdy
They are all good, but for some reason the Reformers were the most interesting characters to me.
Clayton Stangeland

God has blessed Roberts Liardon with a good heart and a desire to further the work of Christ. Six reformers are described in the book; (John Wycliffe, John Hus, Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox, and George Fox.) Any one who has a relationship with the Holy Spirit will be blessed dearly by this book. However, the religous and fake Christians will find this book offensive because, as described in the book, the purpose of the reformers was to point out fake Christianity and replace it with the true gospel.

I loved every bit of this book. Growing up I dreaded the long monotone teachers and memorizing the dates & the timelines in my history classes. After having a great history teacher in college I have grown to love history! It is now a hobbie of sorts for me. And in this book you can see the lives of these men from a different angle than you find in most history books. I found their lives were relatable and I was encouraged by their trials and their accomplishments!

This is an okay book, about Great Men

The people reviewed in this book are great men of God. The book itself is kind of awkward. The author presents biographical sketches, interlaced with comments like, '...I admire the sacrifices that Hus' mother must have made, because I also had a mother and a grandmother who taught me to pray and seek the Lord from my youth. I can relate to the dedication and love that Hus' mother gave to her son. The love of a mother remains the same, no matter what generation she lives in.'

These kind of musings occur throughout the book, and distract from the content. The author also provides a lot of opinions about the characters of these people, rather than just telling their stories.

Overall, a book I'd rather borrow than buy. But I'd rather borrow a better book.

Wow, this was not my favorite book. I thought the documentation was interesting but there is so much personal narrative. It bogs the book down. I like to study and I felt the personal comments really slowed the reading and were a confusion. It was as if he author was trying to preach and write a historical book in one.

Personally the comments struck me as inappropriate. I felt talked down to.

I am not sure if I would purchase this again. One thing I did appreciate was that because he seems to ramble on at times facts that would typically be edited did give the book more of a insight to the people at the time. I am thinking of one bit he put in telling the reaction of the public to a teaching of one of the leaders. I found that interesting and think most books would have edited it out.

I've enjoyed God's Generals II very much. There is a lot of history contained within it's pages. I have learned a lot that I didn't already know so I can say it is definitely worth reading. I did, however, enjoy God's Generals I more, but I think much of that has to do with the fact that it was more modern generals. Anyway, I recommend you get it.

This is a book that every serious Christian should read, and perhaps read again. You will find that, unless you are already an advanced student of church history, you will learn much from this work. Some of the thoughts and opinions regarding men like Knox and even Calvin will be molded, not from what others have been saying but from facts. You'll be stirred when you read of the sufferings of the Quakers as well as of many of the other reformers and will better appreciate the liberty we still enjoy. It's an easy and exciting book to read and I enjoyed it immensely. I laughed, sometimes wanted to cry, and above all else, was greatly stirred!

Great read. Chapters highlighted key reformers in an interesting and detailed way. All this info in one volume...this book was very informative and a bargain. I found it very helpful and together with God's General's 1 a perfect edition to my library.

I bought this at my local christian book store because in addition to loving the Lord I also love history and reading about other great men who love the Lord. This book is meant to be a collection of quick stories about different reformer's lives and not any serious scholarly work. If it was the latter each one of the reformers would need a book equal to if not exceeding this length. It is good for the average reader and is meant to perhaps open the door for people to eventually read similar but more scholarly works relating to these people. So in conclusion this book was written for the common man and in that role it succeeds. A word of warning, this book does talk about the 13th and 14th centuries so the author's remarks about the Catholic Church at the time are a bit scathing however in my opinion most of them are at least close to true.
