Scott Hendrix argues in this book that the sixteenth century reformers all shared the same goal: to Christianize Christendom, that is, to replant authentic Christianity in the vineyard of the Lord, in the same European Christendom which they believed had been devastated by the medieval church. He believes it is more accurate and useful to speak of one Reformation and to locate its diversity in the various theological and practical agendas that were developed to realize the goal of Christianization.


Calvin Theological Journal (Vol. 40, No. 2, Nov. 2005) "By virtue of its clear and straightforward presentation of key Reformation themes, the work is...very suitable for interested general readers." --Karin Maag
Theology Today (Vol. 68, No. 1, April 2006)
Anglican Theological Review (Vol. 88, No. 2)
Lutheran Quarterly (Spring 2006) "[A] nuanced perspective on the many influences and consequences of the Reformation with a clearly articulated thesis that remains theologically challenging....Hendrix is to be commended for producing this wide-ranging and broadly encompassing work." --Timothy Maschke, Concordia University Wisconsin, Mequoun, Wisconsin
Theologische Literaturzeitung (Vol. 131, No. 4, 2006) "[A] lucid and wide-ranging history of the Reformation that will engage beginning students and advanced scholars." --Matry Noll Venables
Christian Scholar's Review (Vol. 35, No. 3, Spring 2006) "Hendrix has produced a well-written, accessible, and provocative book. By demonstrating that such disparate reformers as Luther, Zwingli, Loyola, and Menno Simons operated from strikingly similar agenda[s], he has provided a welcome antidote to the fragmentation of Reformation studies." --James Halverson, History, Judson College
Consensus (Vol. 31, No. 1, 2006)
