Outside the first century, perhaps no period of church history is more rich or controversial than the Reformation. In the follow up to his History of the Church from the Earliest Ages to the Reformation, George Waddington gives an account of the early Reformation via the life of its famous catalyzer: Martin Luther. This classic nineteenth-century history begins with Luther’s upbringing and ends full-circle with the great reformer’s death. Waddington writes with pious purpose, focusing on the ecclesiological and theological import of the Reformation.
