Heroes & Heretics of the Reformation by: Phillip Campbell
Non-fiction: History, Religion, NYR, E-Book
E-Book Count:1
Book Count:1

This book is a short history of the 1st generation of the Reformation as told by the life story of a few key players.  It includes chapters on St. Peter Canisius, Martin Luther, Emperor Charles V, John Calvin, Sts. Thomas more & John Fisher, Cromwell, John Knox, Mary Tudor, Mary Queen of Scots, St. Ignatius, the Popes of the time, and others.  It is written from a Catholic prospective, and it is noticeable, but it does not paint all the reformers with a broad brush, but deals with their individual histories and lives and how that affected their theology.
