According to Ready for Reformation? author Tom Nettles, Southern Baptist churches are still in the midst of a reformation that began with the conservative resurgence. It continues today because reformation requires much more than the recovery of biblical authority. Reformation must penetrate deep; it takes time, patience, spiritual preparedness, sacrifice, and honest self-criticism. This well-researched book encourages modern day reformers to enact a serious re-engagement with doctrinal and practical ideas of the past, for failure to do so could result in a halted reformation. Ready for Reformation? serves as a helpful guide for pastors and Sunday school teachers, and contributes toward reform on the local level in Southern Baptist churches and the denomination at large.
