Product Description

Theodore Beza was a man who in his day was one of the luminaries of the Protestant world, who took the reins of the beleaguered Calvinistic movement after its namesake's death, and who influenced English-speaking Protestantism more than you might imagine. Shawn D. Wright casts light on a figure often neglected and helps illustrate the significant impact of his faith and influence.

Editorial Reviews

For a man who was John Calvin's assistant and successor, Theodore Beza is surprisingly little known. This book does us the great service of introducing the man in and through his major works.

Among the litany of books on Beza this latest work offers a most genuine contribution in its ability to countervail the many modern misconceptions surrounding "the Calvinist." From the aftermath of the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre to the Colloquy of Montbeliard, Beza proved himself to be more than a theologian; he was a statesman and an ambassador for the Reformed faith. Theodore Beza: The Man and the Myth is a robust depiction of Beza in all of these roles.
This title opens with, 'Theodore Beza? Who's he? Why should I care about him?' The author answers these questions with warmth and clarity ... though Beza was a theologian of great intellect, he was a man of great devotion to God and pastoral sensitivity in dealing with God's people.

Overall, an excellent introduction to the life and writings of Theodore Beza.

An enrichingand heart warming experience ... Alec Motyer is a Hebrew scholar with a love and respect for God's Word, we can have confidence in what he has done. There were wonderful moments where the Psalms came alive.

Shawn Wright is a rare gift of a careful historian with a pastor's heart. In this moving tribute on Beza, Wright captures the true man behind the myth and demonstrates why Beza should be both relevant as well as inspiring to the modern pastor.

Wright's own instincts of pastoral sympathy help clear away much of the historiographical garbage that has accumulated around the legacy of Beza and made him a feared step-child of the Reformation.
Well researched and well written, this is an important book about Beza based on a close reading of Beza ... A stellar contribution to Reformation studies and pastoral theology alike.
