This is a vigorous insider's account of five churchmen and theologians prominent in the movement that transformed the face of Christendom. The author emphasises especially the political dimension of the reformation, and with it the emancipation of lay people. He corrects caricatures, without portraying plaster saints. This is a religious biography with a message for today, lest we forget.

David Wright, (1937-2008) Senior Lecturer in Ecclesiastical History, New College, University of Edinburgh

Christopher Catherwood, a writer abreast of ongoing historical study of the period and aware of the spiritual issues hanging on the chain of events, tracks five major players from the cradle to the grave: Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, Cranmer, Knox. Each in his way was a watershed figure, and Catherwood's vivid profiling of them will help to keep their memory green.
