I received this book as a T4G giveaway in 2012, and had it in my to-read stack for quite awhile. I am sad that it took me this long to read it.
In my opinion, in this book Trueman does what he does best: he lectures on the Reformation.
This brief book, however, is very focused on how the theological principles that sparked Reformation, and flowed from it, can still guide us today. I very much benefited from Trueman's expansion on Luther's Theology of the Cross, and its implications for pastoral ministry in the church. I also appreciated his emphasis on the love of God and the work of Christ as the basis for our assurance.

Although, a tad bit of prerequisite knowledge of Reformation history is helpful, this book can be read in a matter of hours, and is very beneficial to those in pastoral ministry.
