Editorial Reviews

"Appold has presented us with an introduction toReformation history that is brief, clear, up-to-date, and blessedlyfree of exaggerations. […] Those who take up Reformationhistory today should begin here.” (Tom A Brady
jr., University of California, Berkley, 1 January 2013)

“Anyone interested in a brief history of Reformationtheology would do well to read this book first to review thehistorical context of the debates surrounding [it] … I wassorry when it came to an end. Fascinated by the brief historicalaccount it offered, I was left wanting more. I highly recommendit.” (Theology Today, 19 September 2012)
"This engaging book provides a fairly thorough synthesis of much ofthe historical writing on thisperiod.” (Theology, 1 July 2012)

“A history of the reformation, even ‘a briefhistory’ in two hundred pages? In fact, because too muchdetail is impossible the author turns this to advantage and is ableto stand back slightly and give an overview … A highlight isAppold’s description of the indulgence controversy –the clearest and most concise I have ever read … ‘Doesexactly what it says on the tin’ has become rather acliché, but a ‘brief history’ of the reformationis exactly what Appold provides.” (EvangelicalQuarterly, 2 April 2012)

"Historian Appold (Princeton Theological Seminary) offers aclearly written overview of Christianity in the Reformation erathat frames 16th-century events as outgrowths of a centuries-oldreforming impulse, rather than a sudden religious convulsion. . .The book is unique in providing an extended discussion of thespread of Lutheranism to Scandinavia, filling in a notable gap inmany accounts of the Reformation, but this comes at the expense ofreforms in the British Isles. . . Summing Up: Recommended.Undergraduate collections." (Choice, 1 November 2011)

“Anyone interested in a brief history of Reformationtheology would do well to read this book first to review thehistorical context of the debates surrounding [it] … I wassorry when it came to an end. Fascinated by the brief historicalaccount it offered, I was left wanting more. I highly recommendit.” Theology Today
