From the Publisher"Reformation and the Culture of Persuasion will sustain and fuel the still lively debate about the character, impact and progress of this momentous movment of religious renewal."
-Times Literary Supplement
"There is a great deal to ponder in this illuminating book. It is written with Pettegree's customary clarity, it selflessly doffs its cap to the work of other historians, and it rightly stresses that the business of religious persuasion was often a communal, shared event. There are...ideas to which not everyone will assent, but the book certainly forces the reader to question many assumptions about how early modern people took the dramatic step of casting off one faith so that they might embrace another."
-Jonathan Wright, H-Net
"The rewards of this book are the products of Pettegree's profound acquaintance with the Reformed world across linguistic boundaries and his intellectual creativity. He has digested the principles and the scholarly fruits of interdisciplinary research and drawn them into a coherent relationship to one another...this is a survey of lasting historiographic significance."
-Susan C. Karant-Nunn, University of Arizona, Church History
