Product Description

This volume contains two highly important writings of the period of the Protestant Reformation. Melanchthon's book Loci communes theologici, the first Protestant dogmatics, as it is sometimes called, represents the work of a young man writing at the very beginning of the Lutheran Reformation. Bucer's work On the Kingdom of Christ, the first Protestant treatise of social ethics, is the product of a mature man standing on the verge of old age. Bucer and Malanchthon, next to Luther, are the most important figures in the Protestant Reformation and should be more widely read in the English speaking world. 406 Pages. Softcover from Westminster John Knox Press.

The Library of Christian Classics has long been acclaimed for its quality translations, introductions, explanatory notes, and indexes. The series ensures that modern English translations of some of the most significant Christian theological works written before the end of the sixteenth century are available for scholars and students, allowing contemporary readers to mine the theological riches of the Christian church though the centuries.
