Five Leading Reformers: Lives at a Watershed of History by Christopher Catherwood and published by Christian Focus Publications.
Christopher Catherwood summarises the lives of Martin Luther, John Calvin, Ulrich Zwingli, Thomas Cranmer and John Knox. There is nothing which brings a period to life quite as much as a biographical sketch, and the period of the Reformation is especially rich in memorable characters.
Catherwood's fluent style brings out the broad sweep of a spiritual movement which transcended national barriers and has left a permanent mark on Europe and the wider world. He shows how five men of very different backgrounds and outlook could all be caught up in the same experience of a life transformed by the power of God. These portraits are painted warts and all to give readers an accurate, truthful, and compelling account of the lives of five great men at a watershed of history.
