Overview

This book offers only provisional opinions on the works of Reformation scholarship. It selects topics for attention, because selectivity cannot be avoided. It agrees with some interpretations and disagrees with others, simply because to do otherwise would lead to insufferable blandness as well as incomprehensible confusion. It marshals both the familiar and the newer components of the Reformation story behind a single thesis; but does so principally for the sake of convenience and clarity.
