First released in 1988, this 25th Anniversary Edition of Timothy George’s Theology of the Reformers includes a new chapter and bibliography on William Tyndale, the reformer who courageously stood at the headwaters of the English Reformation. Also included are expanded opening and concluding chapters and updated bibliographies on each reformer.
Theology of the Reformers articulates the theological self-understanding of five principal figures from the period of the Reformation: Martin Luther, Huldrych Zwingli, John Calvin, Menno Simons, and William Tyndale. George establishes the context for their work by describing the spiritual climate of their time. Then he profiles each reformer, providing a picture of their theology that does justice to the scope of their involvement in the reforming effort.
George details the valuable contributions these men made to issues historically considered pillars of the Christian faith: Scripture, Jesus Christ, salvation, the church, and last things. The intent is not just to document the theology of these reformers, but also to help the church of today better understand and more faithfully live its calling as followers of the one true God.
Through and through, George’s work provides a truly integrated and comprehensive picture of Christian theology at the time of the Reformation.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Timothy George does a nice job of providing an introduction of the major characters of the Reformation and how they came to their beliefs. It is not a light read. It is geared toward those interested in understanding more about the different tracks of Protestant theology. He does a great job of revealing how the Catholic Church corrupted itself by becoming entangled in keeping its political power and control over the common people. My favorite chapter of the book is on Tyndale. I realize now how under appreciated he is in Protestant history. It was well worth the time just to learn more about him. Thank you to Mr. George for including him where many leave him out.
