His work is marked by honesty, for he does not look away from their flaws. But Catherwood also shows how their lives were touched by greatness from God, for He must be the ultimate explanation for the reformers' accomplishments. Catherwood does not merely re-tell familiar facts. He opens up their meaning and relevance, so that one is drawn into the drama with effortless fascination. As I read, I was constantly making connections with our present-day situation. It was a privilege to read this book, and it is a delight to recommend it.

Ray Ortlund, Lead Pastor, Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee

Reading this was a joy, it was short and witty, containing enough detail to be obviously informative and well researched yet it spoke in non-academic language expressing its message easily, confidently and vividly. It was easy to be drawn into the story as the pace was quick, well structured and modern in its approach.
