Early Protestant Spirituality is a unique collection of testimonies, sermons, prayers, hymns, Bible studies, and essays, many of which have not been available in English until now. Speaking contemporaneously are Luther and Urbanus Rhegius; Thomas Cranmer and Zwingli; and Melanchthon with Bucer and Coverdale. Focusing primarily on first generation Protestants, these texts focus on topics such as preaching, living the faith, reconstructing the sacraments, singing, prayer, and more.
