Reformation Views of Church History - Glanmor Williams

Condition: Good. An acceptable reading copy with clear signs of previous ownership and shelf wear. Gently faded at the spine with light reading creases.

First in this edition. From the cover: “The historical study of Christianity received a fresh impetus at the Reformation. The Reformers, especially Martin Luther, appealed to history, and set themselves to examine the 1,500 years of the Christian Church. But what kind of history was it they saw? What sort of process had been at work to bring the Church to the experience of reformation? Luther was no professional historian, nor a humanist but as Professor Williams points out he was capable of some historical insight. The book also examines the historical insight of Tyndale, Bale, and Foxe — three men who in the English scene looked to history and its providential witness as a justification for their reforming zeal.”
