Description:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "In clear and lively prose, Appold weaves the threads of a complex theological, economic, cultural, political and institutional story into a coherent narrative. Luther is clearly a central figure in the telling of his tale, but he is firmly located within the deep context of the medieval heritage, and other voices of the sixteenth century--perhaps most notably, the Anabaptists--get an ample and fair hearing as well. This deft, nuanced survey will serve general readers and classroom teachers alike as a reliable introduction to the Reformation era. I recommend it highly."-- John D. Roth , Goshen College "A masterful synthesis of the latest scholarship, this well-written, clearly told account of the Reformation in central and northern continental Europe is both traditional and innovative. Those interested in a scholarly, up-to-date, and fresh study that privileges the perspectives of the Protestant reformers need look no further."-- Nelson H. Minnich , The Catholic University of America "Appold has presented us with an introduction to Reformation history that is brief, clear, up-to-date, and blessedly free of exaggerations. [.] Those who take up Reformation history today should begin here."-- Tom A Brady jr., University of California, Berkley. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: The Reformation: A Brief History is a succinct and engaging introduction to the origins and history of the Protestant Reformation. 

  • A rich overview of the Reformation, skillfully blending social, political, religious and theological dimensions
  • A clearly and engagingly written narrative which draws on the latest and best scholarship
  • Includes the history of the Reformation in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, areas that are rarely covered in any detail
  • The Reformation is placed in the context of the entire history of Christianity to draw out its origins, impetus, and legacy

From the Back Cover: In 1517, the actions of a simple monk ushered in a period of unparalleled religious and political upheaval. The Reformation: A Brief History provides a succinct yet comprehensive introduction to this extraordinary period, showing how and why the Protestant Reformation arose and unfolded. 

In this rich account, the author skillfully blends social history, religious and theological ideas with economic and political factors. The description is well-rounded, drawing not just on the actions of the main characters, but also the experiences and ideas of ordinary people, the quest for social justice, and the conflicting approaches to Christian unity. The events of the Reformation are placed in the context of Christian history to offer a fuller understanding of the period. The result is a truly engaging narrative that shows the reader exactly what was at stake, and why, as the events unfurled. 

Accessible, lucid and based on the best of current research, this book offers readers a wonderful overview of one of the most critical periods in Western history.
