God's work in the life of Ulrich Zwingli
This figure who has been overshadowed, yet is tremendously important, is Ulrich Zwingli of Switzerland.Ulrich Zwingli (Jan 1484 - Oct 1531) was a leader of the Protestant reformation in Switzerland I was very thrilled with the wrtting in this novel and highly recommend this book. This biography is composed of about 150 pages of text, and the pages are small, making this a brief introduction to Zwingli's life.Zwingli is someone I knew very little about, even though I have studied church history and the reformers fairly extensively over the last few years, so I was excited to read this book. I found this book to be well written, factual, based on solid research, insightful in interpretation, and quite helpful in bringing to life the contextual situations, events, and facts of the life of this important Reformer. This book should be useful to those interested in this significant man, that historical period, the theology of the early Reformation, the history of Switzerland, etc. I recommend it for those readers
I would read today!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Cross Focused Reviews in order to provide this review.
