Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Alister McGrath... is one of the best scholars and teachers of the Reformation.... [this book] is more than one dared ask for.... How teachers will rejoice in this wonderfully useful book." Teaching History (of a previous edition).

"Vigorous, brisk and highly stimulating. The reader will be thoroughly engaged from the outset, and considerably enlightened at the end." John Platt, Pembroke College, University of Oxford (of a previous edition).

"Highly recommended." Choice (of a previous edition).

"A remarkably fine introduction to the study of the Reformation and its theological ideas; it is exceptionally well thought out, fully up to date in its scholarship, fair in its presentation, and simply pellucid in its explanations. Highly recommended." ADRIS (of a previous edition).

"....this second edition of Reformation Tought is very useful, especially in providing a guide to reformation writings and writers (both primary and secondary) for the upper-division or beginning student of Reformation ideas." Elwood E. Mather III, Montana State University.

"McGrath does a good job of summarizing the Reformation's principal ideas. Reformation Thought is a helpful primer and a genuine counterbalance to polemical Catholic treatments, excessively irenical ecumenical assessments, and secular renditions that minimize or ignore the power of theological ideas to revolutionize a culture." Catholic Dossier
