Looking to do some Reformation reading today? You may not realize it, but Bible Gateway’s got a strong library of Reformation-related material, all online and easily accessible. Here are some of our Reformation resources:

  1. The Geneva Bible: It seems fitting to start this list with the book that lay at the center of the Reformation: the Bible. Specifically, the Geneva Bible, first published in the 1550s and tremendously influential on the course of the Protestant Reformation. You can also think of it as the world’s first study Bible, as it was accompanied by copious study notes written by a veritiable who’s-who of the Reformation. We added the Geneva Bible to our online library earlier this year—see our blog announcement for lots more detail about the Geneva Bible’s lasting significance.
  2. The Reformation Study Bible: This Bible contains thousands of study notes written by dozens of respected scholars, including J.I. Packer, Wayne Grudem, and R.C. Sproul. All of that study material can be read right alongside your regular Bible reading—follow these instructions to access the Reformation Study Bible notes while you read.
  3. Insight from R.C. Sproul: Speaking of R.C. Sproul (one of the leading Reformed theologians preaching today), our devotional library contains several devotionals written and edited by him. Essentials of the Christian Faith, Tabletalk Devotions with R.C. Sproul, and Tough Questions with R.C. Sproul will all take you on an accessible, honest journey through the basics of Christian belief.
  4. The Best of Charles Spurgeon: Charles Spurgeon was one of the most eloquent and influential Reformed preachers of the modern era, and his Morning and Evening devotional is beloved around the world. We’ve also got two devotionals that draw on Spurgeon’s sermons—Spurgeon at the Metropolitan Tabernacle and the New Park Street Chapel. As with the Sproul devotions, you can read them online or have them delivered to you via email.

We hope that you enjoy this Reformation reading—and perhaps incorporate it into your regular devotional reading!
