    "A Reformation Reader", edited by Denis Janz, brings the world of the Reformation to light by showcasing selections from original letters, articles, sermons and books of the era. While covering Luther & Calvin, Janz also covers lesser known movements such as Zwingli's Swiss Reformation; the Anabaptist movement and their writings; and the English reformers. The context of the Reformation is filled out by his inclusion of pre-Reformation Catholic authors and sentiments, and a discussion of the counter Reformation and the Catholic Council of Trent.Janz introduces each section with a brief introduction to that segment of the Reformation. The pre-Reformation, Luther, Calvin, Swiss Reformation, Anabaptist movement, English Reformation and the counter Reformation movements are all represented. Janz brings up various scholarly disputes in how to interpret the Reformation. He does a good job staying neutral and explaining what the questions are. He presents documents that are able to challenge both viewpoints, and he encourages a study of the texts themselves.This book includes a wide array of material. It certainly would serve well as a text book for covering the history of that era.The book is more than a textbook, however. It provides a fascinating amount of material for the average Christian lay reader to explore. I enjoyed the historical perspective and the inclusion of many of the original writings of the key players in the Reformation. I hope that this book will spur on its readers to desire a deeper reading of the classic writings of the Christian faith. I know it has done that for me.I highly recommend this book, and the study of this important time in Christian history. My thanks go out to Augsburg Fortress Press for providing me with a review copy of this book at my request.
