Martin Bucer (1491-1551) was one of the most important sixteenth century Reformers, who became leader of the Reformed Churches in Switzerland and South Germany after the death of Zwingli. To mark the 500th anniversary of his birth, an international team of specialists on Bucer highlight his contribution in thought and practice to building the community of the Church in England and Europe. The issues addressed also raise matters of contemporary significance, such as Church-state relations, Protestant-Catholic unity, and tensions between a church of true believers and a "people's" church.

Book Description:

Martin Bucer was one of the most important sixteenth-century Reformers. An international team of specialists here focus on one of his central concerns - building a Christian community to embrace all people but also be utterly spiritual and committed.

Review:

"With its emphasis firmly on Bucer's lifelong endeavor to formulate and implement a truly Christian society, this volume should do its bit to help the English-speaking academic world accord due recognition to Bucer as one of the most interesting, as well as most significant, among the makers of the sixteenth-century Reformation." Central European

"This collection of essays, published to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Strasbourg reformer's birth, is an excellent introduction in English to Bucer's ecclesiology and to the related issues of the ministry, church and state, and the sacraments, both in general and individually....By approaching the topic from different angles, this collection of essays offers insights into Bucer's ecclesiology as a whole. As such it is a valuable contribution to the growing body of work on Bucer, and it should help make the Strasbourg reformer's views better known to the English-speaking world." The Catholic Historical Review

"I highly recommend this book to any scholars or students of the Reformation. ...well-written and well-documented. ...it is the only book in English that deals so extensively with Bucer's ecclesiology. I also recommend it for those pastors who are looking for some thought-provoking reading on the church." Barry Howson, The Baptist Review of Theology
