Christianity's Dangerous Idea: The Protestant Revolution.

Christianity's Dangerous Idea: The Protestant Revolution Alister E. McGrath (HarperOne, 2007, 552pp)

An Oxford historical theology professor looks at how a core tenet of Protestantism, each person's right to interpret the Bible for themselves, has profoundly impacted Christianity and the Protestant movement from the 16th to the 21st century. He claims that this principle is responsible for both adaptability and instability as he takes a historical and contemporary look at the beliefs and practices of Protestantism as well as its global future.
