When we talk about reformation, most of us think immediately of the events that took place in sixteenth-century Europe. Though the word reformation does indeed belong within the realm of church history, it is more importantly a biblical concept??a mandate, even??that still needs our attention today. Richard Phillips examines the vital crossroads and turning points for the people of God in both the Old and New Testaments, demonstrating that in the flow of redemptive history there is a definite pattern of formation, deformation, and reformation. It's a pattern no less evident in our own times, and it gives us a lens through which to view ourselves, our thoughts, and our plans. As Phillips explains the biblical mandate for reformation and sets forth God's principles that shape this call, you will be encouraged and emboldened toward a more confident application of these truths.
