Heroes & Heretics of the Reformation

Phillip Campbell
TAN Books, 319 pages

The Church is “at the same time holy and always in need of being purified,” stated the Second Vatican Council (Lumen Gentium, 8). That’s as true now as it was when the Reformation erupted a half millennium ago. Martin Luther’s call for reform ended in schism, giving rise to other breakaways that have splintered Protestant Christianity countless times. In this captivating volume, Phillip Campbell surveys the “heroes, heretics, and some who were a little of both” who were players in the Protestant schism and the Catholic “reformation” that followed with the Council of Trent. He provides helpful perspective as we reflect on our tragic past and seek to restore Christian unity.
