Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[This collection] effectively introduces students to the fundamental issues of the Reformation as well as the tenor of the times and the course of the events surrounding the outbreak of the greatest reform movement in Christian history. [It provides] a rich vein of material to be mined by those who are catching a glimpse of Reformation thought for the first time, and...can serve to deepen understanding of the breadth and depth of the period for those in a second level course. Every university, college and seminary library must have [this volume]. [It provides] a helpful introduction to the thought and the context of thinking in the sixteenth century."
