Preview

This book not only introduces the general reader to twenty of the lesser‐known figures of the sixteenth‐century Reformation but it also outlines the theological issues they debated. It divides the reformers into four confessional families – Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, and Radical – with chapters devoted to five representatives from each family. Every chapter introduces a theological problem as well as an engaging figure. Through this collection of biographical studies and theological analysis, readers are offered what amounts to a primer of Reformation theology. The book stresses the polychromatic character of the Reformation and serves as both an accessible introduction for beginning students and a useful reference for scholars.
