This volume is a major reference work on all aspects of theology in the reformation period. Editor David M. Whitford assembles an able group of scholars to present a detailed outline of the Reformed tradition. The contributors guide the reader through the historical background and theological development of this rich heritage. Major topics of theology within the Reformed tradition are discussed, including human nature and the fall, election and justification, the sacraments, eschatology and the Antichrist, and much more. The essays provide a helpful guide to the major aspects of the historic Reformed faith and offer new insights that will generate further dialogue and refinement of the tradition.

The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume streamlines and enhances your study. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and original-language texts, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches by topic to find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say.

Praise for the Print Edition

David Whitford has succeeded in bringing those specialists together that have given in this book a full oversight of the theology of the Reformation in all of its variety. Latest results of research, a fine combination of theology and history, and an accessible style make this book into one of the leading handbooks on our way to 2017 and beyond.

Herman Selderhuis, professor of church history and church polity, Theological University Apledoorn, Netherlands

Whitford opens this overture to Reformation theology with a wise essay on how neophytes might take their first steps in the discipline. In what follows, eighteen seasoned pros weigh in with substantial contributions on the classical loci, salient themes, and neuralgic issues. A fine starting point for graduate students and seminarians.

Denis R. Janz, provost distinguished professor of the history of Christianity, Loyola University, New Orleans
