Many people today are struggling with the problem of the church. Can the present structures be reformed within, or should they simply be abandoned as barriers to the recovery of community? Peter Martyr Vermigli faced this issue in the 16th century. He made a major contribution to the progress of the Reformation through his lectures, letters, and publications from teaching posts at Oxford, Strasbourg, and Zurich. This book is an intimate account of this theologian's life and work. Includes illustrations.

About the Author:

Mariano Di Gangi is a former Professor of Pastoral Studies at Ontario Theological Seminary and Minister of Knox Presbyterian Church in Toronto.

Review:

This biographical study of the life and times of Peter Martyr is long overdue. Dr. Di Gangi's pleasant style, thorough research and expressive turn of phrase make this an excellent read for both scholar and amateur.>>>> (Joseph C. McLelland)

This is a well researched volume with a special gift for providing the reader with a vivid sense of the surroundings of Peter Martyr on the various places where he spent his life. This is a very readable biography of a man who did not receive the attention he deserves in the history of the Reformation.>>> (Roger Nicole)

Dr. Di Gangi...has done us all a great service by preparing this introduction to the life and work of Peter Martyr. Those with a rudimentary knowledge of the Reformation era may not be aware of Matyr's stature as a theologian and a preacher....But themere existence of so great a scholar and so fine a Christian as Peter Matyr is a reminder to us that although the Italians have still to receive the full witness of the protestant gospel, there remains the challenge and possibility to this day. I am sureDr. Di Gangi, himself the child of Italian immigrant parents to the USA, has chosen Matyr for his study with this hope in mind. It may yet be that Matyr's witness will prove a great blessing to his fellow countrymen.>> (Roger Nicole Reformed Theological Review)

Mariano Di Gangi's cultivated half-century of interest in Peter Martyr has yielded us a most accessible doorway of entry into understanding and appreciating 'that incomparable man'! Here is the introduction to the man and the subject for which many have sought.>>> (Roger Nicole Westminster Theological Journal)

...certainly a welcome addition to the burgeoning list of recent essays and studies dealing with Reformed contemporaries and successors of Calvin.>>>> (Richard A. Muller)
