Faith and Act is a mix of exacting research and historiographical vision that may justly be viewed as one of the foundation texts of modern Reformation history.
-C. Scott Dixon

Historians of liturgy and church discipline will welcome the reappearance of Zeeden's classic monograph, gracefully translated and with updated bibliographic references.
-Ralph Keen

Kevin Walker's translation of Faith and Act represents a necessary addition to contemporary scholarship on how liturgical practices shaped the living religion of the Reformation churches...and delightfully unsettles easy generalizations about the transition from medieval to early modern Christianity.
-Phillip Haberkern
