Praise for the Print Edition

One might naturally suspect that a book on such a subject would, without special effort on the part of the author, be very dull and heavy. On the contrary, this book is fresh and racy. It is indeed historic—ecclesiastically historic, carefully historic—but the facts represent the intense, radical, revolutionary life of the Reformation age.
