Item description for Reform and Conflict: From the Medieval World to the Wars of Religion, AD 1350-1648 (Baker History of the Church) by Rudolph W. Heinze...

The Baker History of the Church series is an accessible and authoritative series that has shed light on the roots of the Christian faith and the foundations of the church. Reform and Conflict, the fourth volume in the series, covers AD 1350-1648. An era of dramatic change in church and state, this time period saw significant administrative, moral, and doctrinal reforms that led to both theological and military conflict. Evaluating and interpreting the most recent biblical research and historical scholarship, Reform and Conflict examines the era's lasting impact on the arts, science, economics, political thought, and education. In investigating how the period affected the religious beliefs of every believer, Rudolph W. Heinze shows how this period greatly influenced what Christians believe and practice today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reform and Conflict: From the Medieval World to the Wars of Religion, AD 1350-1648 (Baker History of the Church)?

Authoritative, yet readable and fun  Feb 10, 2006
In the opening pages of this book Professor Heinze tells the story of Johann Sleidan (1506-1556), who wrote one of the earliest histories of the Reformation. What is notable about Sleidan is that he made a conscious effort to be fair to all parties at a time when impartiality in history writing was nearly unheard of. Prof Heinze has clearly made every effort to follow in Sleidan's noble footsteps, and the result is a work which is a joy to read.

It is abundantly evident that Prof Heinze is on top of all the latest research and schools of thought; in fact, it is amazing to learn that you could arrive at a somewhat warped understanding of the Reformation (which occurred nearly 500 years ago) if you neglected to consider research done since 1980! But for all that Prof Heinze doesn't let his erudition get in the way of good storytelling.

The section on the English Reformation has been most interesting to me; it has helped me to understand how the Puritans came to be who they were and how they fit into the larger society. And if you think your family is dysfunctional, just read about Henry VIII and his extended family. You couldn't make this stuff up!

The format of the book is superb. As with all Baker books, the typography is attractive and legible. One of the best features is a "Suggestions for Further Reading" section at the back that gives annotated suggestions for each chapter with separate sublists for primary and secondary works.
