Perhaps the most enigmatic figure among the Reformers, Martin Bucer’s life, theology, and reforms are vital for gaining a global perspective on the European reformations. Many of the Reformers lives and teachings are all too easily detached from their socio-political context. Not so with Bucer. Bucer’s life is intricately tied to his context, and Greschat does an excellent job of illuminating him within his historical milieu. A one-of-a-kind resource for students, and a great read for anyone interested in the Reformation.
