Famous Reformers of the Reformed and Presbyterian Churches
Heidelberg Press 1916
The Reformation has been studied from many standpoints: as a political movement, as a polemical or theological movement, or as an economic or moral or ecclesiastical movement. But historian James I. Good believes we should focus on the missionary aspect. Good sketches the careers and achievements of notable Reformers with simplicity, clearness, and conciseness, while exploring the Reformation as a missionary movement.

Praise for the Print Edition
. . . he is able to make these old reformers live again, and to do it in a very few pages. He crowds into a very small compass what he has gleaned from volumes. The story of John Calvin extends over exactly 20 pages, and yet it seems to touch every point found in fuller biographies.
