This volume marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 with the recognition that the Reformation was not merely about events, ideas, and movements. It was also the story of people. It is the story of their faith, their witness, their way of handling conflict, and the way in which their personal habits-even apart from their words-have left behind a message for us. Martin Luther and the reformers encouraged Christians to study the lives of faithful Christians who had gone before and to learn from them. This, they said, was the proper way to remember the saints. In this volume, the reader is invited to reflect on the saints of the Reformation. Some, like Martin Luther, you may have heard of before. Others, like Ursula von Münsterberg, are little known. But in the lives of all-men and women, royals and commoners, clergy and laypeople-the work of God is evident. Their witness to Christ and His mercy remains a powerful testimony to Christians today.
