"The sketches in this book strive to show that the Reformation remains vitally important for Christians today," writes W. Robert Godfrey.
"Reformers and preachers of the sixteenth century were the best educated, most godly, and most faithful group of leaders the church has ever seen. In a remarkable way they combined commitment, learning, and orthodoxy. We need to continue to learn from them."
In Reformation Sketches, Martin Luther and John Calvin receive most of Godfrey's attention, but he also treats Philip Melanchthon, Peter Martyr Vermigli, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort.
