Product Description

The sketches in this book strive to show that the Reformation remains vitally important for Christians today. Reformers and preachers of the sixteenth century were the best educated, most godly, and most faithful group of leaders the church has ever seen. In a remarkable way they combined commitment, learning, and orthodoxy. In this book, Martin Luther and John Calvin received most of Godfrey's attention, but he also treats Philip Melanchthon, Peter Martyr Vermigli, the Heidelberg Catechism and the Canons of Dort.

Editorial Reviews

A wonderfully written history of the Great Reformation. With the care of a scholar and the insights of professional maturity, Godfrey takes us on a journey into our heritage.
Godfrey is a wise and engaging historian of the Reformation. His sketches provide a compelling introduction to the Reformers, showing their relevance of their lives and thought for Christians today.
Edifying history at its best—a thorough grasp of cultural and political circumstances influencing the church, a keen understanding of the doctrinal issues at stake, and a deep concern for the ongoing reformation of the contemporary church.
