schema:reviewBody""This book, by a leading Reformation scholar, is the only comprehensive introduction to Zwingli's thought for the student and general reader. In it, Professor Stephens discusses the main areas of debate in Zwingli studies, and engages with a variety of interpretations of Zwingli. In the opening chapters he places Zwingli in the context of Zurich and Switzerland in the 16th century, describes the various influences in Zwingli's development, and outlines his life and work as a reformer. There follow two chapters which introduce the main themes in Zwingli's thought: his understanding and use of the Bible; God, Christ, and the Spirit; salvation, word and sacrament; baptism; the eucharist; the church and the state. These subjects are related both to the life and work of Zwingli himself and the views of other reformers. A final chapter considers Zwingli as a reformer and theologian. Here, and elsewhere in the book, Professor Stephens points to Zwingli's relevance today. There is a short glossary of theological and other terms which will be particularly useful to the general reader. A select bibliography gives the main books and articles in English relevant to each of the chapters."--Jacket."
