Editorial Reviews

"...Overall, it is an accomplishment in intellectual history. Not only will the reader acquire a great store of information, s/he will likely be stimulated to pursue additional reading on the thoughtbof the reformation. The editors encourage that pursuit in their concluding section, where they sketch out new sources for and fresh inquiries about Reformation thought....It is easy to be enthusiastic about this book. It is informative, contemporary, accessible to the ordinary reader, and about the ideal length. It concludes while the reader is still interested in the topic and anxious for pointers toward other sources in the field. It demonstrates that specialists can communicate with common readers and instill in them the passion of the scholars' pursuit of knowledge that matters. And all this comes at a price an ordinary person can afford!" --Luke L. Keefer, Jr., Ashland Theological Journal
