On with the Reformation!: Facing up to the Church’s Misuse of Power


Avery Bartlett Books 2012

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In On with the Reformation!, Sean Devine reflects on 2,000 years of church history to understand what the church has become and what it should be. Devine argues that the church in the Western world is in decline, but that this is not a result of structure or programs. The church’s problem is it doesn’t look like Jesus. Devine seeks to diagnose the presence by digging into the past. He writes in a readable, jargon-free style, addressing the laypeople who must do the work of becoming the body of Christ.
