Overview

In this book, D. G. Hart investigates what was at stake in the sixteenth century and why Protestantism still matters. Of note is the author’s recognition that the Reformers addressed the most basic question that confronts all human beings: How can a sinner be right with and worship in good conscience a righteous God who demands sinless perfection? Protestants used to believe that this question, along with the kind of life that followed from answers to it, was at the heart of their disagreement with Rome. Still Protesting arises from the conviction that the Reformers’ answers to life’s most important questions, based on their study of the Bible and theological reflection, are as superior today as they were when they provided the grounds for Christians in the West to abandon the bishop of Rome.

Darryl Hart’s blend of historical study, theological reflection, and analysis of contemporary events produces a wonderful defense of the Reformation and polemic against Rome. It is a timely reminder of what a great blessing the Reformation was and continues to be. If you know any Protestants attracted to Rome, this book could be the best gift you ever give them.

—David VanDrunen, Robert B. Strimple Professor of Systematic Theology and Christian Ethics, Westminster Seminary California

Protestants, by God’s grace, did what needed to be done in the sixteenth century. This book calls us, by God’s grace, to keep at it. Dr. Hart offers a robust critique of Rome, a winsome case for Reformed Protestantism, and a delightful tour of the Reformation. Through it all, Hart brings a laser focus to the singular question posed by Luther and still relevant five hundred years later: Is Christ alone sufficient? Keep protesting yes.

—Stephen J. Nichols, president of Reformation Bible College, chief academic officer of Ligonier Ministries, and coeditor with R. C. Sproul of The Legacy of Luther
