This study is divided into three parts. Part One deals with the historical and intellectual context of five English Reformers: William Tyndale, John Frith, Robert Barnes, John Hooper, and John Bradford. Part Two examines in detail the doctrine of salvation as taught by three Reformers during the reign of Henry VIII: William Tyndale, John Frith, and Robert Barnes. Part Three considers the doctrine of salvation for the Reformation under Edward VI and Catholic reaction under Mary, taking John Hooper and John Bradford as it subjects. After presenting a brief background of the English reformers, the chapter notes the reason for calling this book ‘Luther's Legacy’.
