Rate this:
Ozment gives grass-roots insights into the least appreciated of modern revolutions. Told from the point of view of the first Protestants, in the form of letters, diaries, and other people's documents, this profound critique views the revolt as a social reform--the rejection of hypocrisy, corruption, and empty ritual--rather than the progenitor of Nazism.

I read this for a book review for school. It's well done. Ozment is a good writer. In this book he argues that the 20th century Germany doesn't come from the Reformation in 16th century Germany. He thinks that although the Reformation is a "revolution", it is nowhere near the Third Reich.

He also uses a lot of primary sources that are useful and interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone who is really interested in the Reformation, particularly Germany.
