    1. George s Theology of the Reformers explores the history and theology of four key reformation leaders Luther, Zwingli, and Menno Simons The writer displays the personal challenges and struggles of each of these men and the resulting impact on their faith and theology, for it is their theology that bears great impact on the theology of Christians today As George himself states, for those who stand committedly within the Christian tradition, it is a matter of genuine concern to understand what was [...]

    3. Not only did I gain a better understanding of the reformers Luther, Zwingli, Calvin and Menno Simons and their theology, but I was also deeply moved by their testimonies in different ways Luther inspired me by his anguished, tenacious ransacking of Scripture to find its true teaching about salvation I was also amazed by his boldness to speak out against the vast machine of papalism Reading about Calvin made me want to read of John Calvin Timothy George does a great job of summarizing the polar [...]

    4. At the end of his life, Augustine wrote what has become a very misunderstood book, especially by those who have not read it or any of his previous works The book was titled Retractationes which literally means re treatments Augustine retraced his works and addressed many of the things he had already written by way of clarifications and some changes Augustine was not recanting of the things he wrote but rather coming to them once again as a seasoned believer and theologian.In 1988, while teachin [...]

    5. This text centers on the ideas of reformers Martin Luther, John Calvin, Huldrych Zwingli, Menno Simons who lived some 450 500 years ago Their world was much different from our own, in many ways that we cannot comprehend Yet, Timothy George helps us to bridge that gap in this highly illuminating and insightful work Having read multiple biographies on Luther, as well as various works on Calvin and the Anabaptists, I was surprised by how many new insights Theology of the Reformers contains Not only [...]

    6. The strength of this book is that it does not simply tell about the life and writings of the reformers, but it also speaks of the theology behind what the reformers said and wrote George highlights four men Luther, Zwingli, Calvin and Menno Simmons He exemplifies a mastery of the material, moving easily from the theological writings to personal letters and sermons to events in the lives of the reformers, showing how their life experiences shaped their theology and how their theology shaped their [...]

    7. Excellent book Eloquently written Easy to understand Seeks to demonstrate that the Protestant Reformation was primarily though not merely theological A must read for any seeking to understand the theology of the magisterial reformers.

    8. This is a great book for an introduction to the history and theology of the reformers, written by a reformed baptist The author writes with good humor I give it 4.5 stars instead of 4 because of the pleasure of the read.

    9. Theology of the Reformers by Timothy George surveys the development of the Reformed Christian tradition that began in the 16th century throughout various parts of Europe George charts the progression of theological thought during the Middle Ages, examining four men of great influence whose impact on theology redirected the course of the church for centuries afterward, and presumably, until the end of time The author codifies the journeys and theologies of four men Martin Luther, John Calvin, Hul [...]

    10. This is a great book and excellent survey of some of the well known Reformers Luther, Zwinglis, Calvin, Menno Simmons, and Tyndale I would have liked others, perhaps Martin Bucer The chapters are lengthy, but each deals with one particular Reformer They are long because there is a plethora of info George puts an emphasis on their orthopraxy rather than thier writings It is a good survey of the men rather than on their writings Highly recommended for any good Reformation Scholar.

    11. Used this as a main source for a Wednesday night study at our church leading up to Reformation Day This book is a perfect balance of biography and theological primer for dominant Reformation figures.

    12. The writings and influence of Reformers such as Martin Luther without a doubt had a giant impact on the church Further, the works and leadership of other perhaps lesser known Reformers such as William Tyndale, Menno Simons, and Huldrych Zwingli also deserve attention as they too provided a major impact in what is considered as Reformation thought Dr Timothy George, in a slightly revised version of his work Theology of the Reformers, provides an excellent analysis of the theological thought of th [...]

    13. Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School, has written a marvelous book on the theology of four of the leaders of the Protestant Reformation including the famous Martin Luther and John Calvin, but also including Huldrych Zwingli the little discussed third Reformer and Mennos Simon, one of the leading figures of the Radical Reformation, itself an even anti institutional Reformation of the Reformation George s analysis of how these four Christian thinkers evolved out of the turmoil of Late M [...]

    14. Timothy George begins the book by taking the Reformation out of the hands of the humanists that seek to leverage it as the dawn of the modern age and human freedom Instead, George puts the Reformation in the context of the medieval church, and the Reformers desire to return to the true Apostolic Church The Reformation was not an expression of liberation from authority, but a return to the authority of the Holy Scriptures.The early part of the book is dedicated to a brief retelling of how the Rom [...]

    15. I found this book to be both enjoyable and beneficial, I love church history and have special appreciation of the reformation era I have done a good bit of reading in this period and I m really impressed that this book wasn t simply a rehashing of stuff I d already read Timothy George is clearly an excellent scholar his Galatians commentary which is very good convinced me of that previously , but is also an engaging writer Which isn t a given, I have read very dry books about engaging people or [...]

    16. If the God used the patriarchs, the prophets, and the apostles to build His church, He used the reformers to protect His church Theology of the Reformers is a history book as much as a theology book, devoting upwards of 60 pages each to the personal stories of giants Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, Simons, and Tyndale Huge learning curve for me I am thankful for most of them and their careful, pastoral return to the Word Simons, though, transported me back to that Sesame Street One of these things does [...]

    17. As one would expect from Dr Timothy George, Theology of the Reformers, is well written, throughly researched, and spiritually insightful book As an introduction to the Reformation, nothing is better The updated 25th anniversary edition has added a William Tyndale chapter along with the excellent chapters on Luther, Calvin, Zwingli and Menno Simons I most enjoyed the epilogue which tied all the major themes together, giving the reader an fuller understanding the Reformers agreements and differenc [...]

    18. Timothy George synthesizes vast swaths of theological and historical works into one volume on the five major reformers Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, Simmons, and Tyndale He begins by examining the history of ideas and theologies flowing into the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, especially the humanism of Petrarch and the anxious religiosity stemming from the medieval ethos of a vengeful God George, 22 27 He proceeds to examine each reformer in his unique contributions to the reformation, focusing o [...]

    19. Five major figures of the Reformation are profiled There is sufficient biographical information for each, but the main focus is on theology.The author does a masterful job summarizing each man s particular doctrinal emphases and examining them in contrast to each other I know about all these guys, but I d never read one author comparing their theology all at once It was a rich experience I also really enjoyed the first chapter, not a biography but a rundown of pre Reformation movements and doctr [...]

    20. This was the best overview of the reformers I have read Relative to other histories of the reformation, this one is easy to read, and divided into sections based on the influence of different reformers Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, etc If you are looking to learn about the Protestant Reformation, and don t know where to start, start here It is a great introduction to this era of church history.

    21. Nice survey view of 5 giants of the reformationNot only does this book unpack the individual distinctives of these reformer s faith, it provides a nice context of the cultural and societal disruption occurring in parallel It helped open my eyes to the suffering and personal sacrifice each of these reformers endured to articulate reformed theology to the culture and communities around them.

    22. Magnificent study of five key figures from the Protestant Reformation Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, Menno Simmons, and William Tyndale Demonstrating an admirable grasp of both primary sources and secondary literature, Timothy George guides readers into the world of fifteenth century with profundity, wit, and verve This book is a tour de force in historical theology and was easily one of the best books I read this year Highly recommended.

    23. Um livro que trata com profundidade, a vida de quatro reformadores Calvino, Lutero, Zw nglio e Meno Simmons Para quem quer conhecer mais sobre a vida, obra, lutas e desafios enfrentados pelos reformadores, esta uma leitura obrigat ria.

    24. It was very good The author covered the theology of each reformer by contrasting the theology of the different reformers I thought the new chapters were the best part of the book.

    25. This book is a great introduction to the Protestant Reformers and their theology Martin Luther, Huldrych Zwingli, John Calvin, Menno Simons, and William Tyndall.
