Why We’re Protestant
An Introduction to the Five Solas of the Reformation
By Nate Pickowicz
I’m an avid reader and a theology geek, but I’m also sensitive to how few books these days make it in to the ‘Christian Living’ section of your local bookstore that are actually biblical. After following Pastor Pickowicz online and learning more about him I was anxious to get my hands on this book. Nate Pickowicz’s “Why We’re Protestant: An Introduction to the Five Solas of the Reformation” is a well-written introduction to reformation theology and the root of Protestantism.
Pastor Nate does a great job of showing the need for the Protestant Reformation and expounds upon each point of contention clearly. Illustrating much using our most revered heroes of the period only helps make it that much more enjoyable, while often helping to connect us to where they were coming from, where they were going to, and how they got there. Always sure to root everything in scripture, he clearly articulates the theological ideas that are at the core of Protestantism,while showing how the lack of sound teaching in churches today is calling for the same type of recovery and renewal as what started it all.
This book is an excellent primer for the 5 Solas and an enjoyable read. I wanted more! Use this book as an outline, dig in deeper to each one, and reconnect with the truth of the gospel! I thought the pastor summed it up perfectly himself,
“In the end, this is not about the Five Solas, or even the Protestant Reformation. It’s about the glory of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s about recovering and contending for authentic Christianity. – Nate Pickowicz
