Ulrich Zwingli, John Knox, Heinrich Bullinger, Martin Luther, and John Calvin. These five names figure prominently in the James Isaac Good Collection, sixteen volumes of important Reformed Church history. James I. Good, a Reformed Church pastor for over thirty years, was also a noted professor, historian, and book collector. Spending most of his life researching the history of the Reformed Church, Good was also responsible for amassing rare and important Reformed Church books and documents from all over the globe for his research library.
The James Isaac Good Collection (16 vols.) brings together all of Good's works on the history of the Reformed Church. This massive collection contains a two-volume history of the Reformed Church in Germany, a two-volume history of the Reformed Church in the United States, a volume on the history of the Reformed Church of Switzerland, two volumes on the importance of the Heidelberg Catechism, a biographical volume of important women in Reformed Church history, Good's travel memoirs through important historical European Reformed Church sites, and more.
This is the ultimate collection for understanding the foundation, beginnings, and spread of the Reformed Church. With the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in the James Isaac Good Collection (16 vols.) are tagged and appear on mouse-over. What’s more, Scripture references are linked to the wealth of language resources in your Logos library. This makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “Calvin,” or “synod.”
