D'Aubigné's masterpiece, History of the Reformation of the Sixteenth Century, pulls back the curtain of history and Divine providence to reveal the true catalyst for the reformation--God's Word and His Holy Spirit.
"For those who can procure it, D'Aubigné's History of the Reformation will be both interesting and profitable. From this work we may gain some knowledge of what has been accomplished in the past in the great work of reform. We can see how God poured light into the minds of those who searched His Word, how much the men ordained and sent forth by Him were willing to suffer for the truth's sake, and how hard it is for the great mass of mankind to renounce their errors and to receive and obey the teachings of the Scriptures. During the winter evenings, when our children were young, we read from this history with the deepest interest. We made it a practice to read instructive and interesting books with the Bible, in the family circle, and our children were always happy as we thus entertained them. Thus we prevented a restless desire to be out in the street with young companions, and at the same time cultivated in them a taste for solid reading." --Ellen G. White in the Review and Herald, Dec. 26, 1882.
