Format: Paperback
This volume contains an intelligent introduction to these two important Reformation works. Melanchthon's Loci Communes (Theological Commonplaces)was the first attempt to systematize the thought of the Lutheran Reformation on the basis of the Book of Romans using "theological topics." It appreared in 1521 and Luther praised the work. It is also free of the later controversial issues Melanchton inserted into later editions of this work as his thought continued to develop and diverge from Luther's.

Bucer's work is a good intro to Reformed thought and was influential in both England and amongst the Reformed on the continent.

One must keep in mind that Melanchton's *Loci* went through many revisions. This selection represents Melancthon's earlier thoughts. He does a fine job responding to the pelagianism of late Medieval nominalism (and anticipates and effectively rebuts the "Reformation = nominalism" line today). While his exegesis is not as precise as later Reformers, he effectively captures the essence of New Testament freedom in the Spirit (and gives a devastating critique of monastic vows). His use of the Law of God in the Christian's life, while occasionally sloppy at times, is very interesting.

This selection of Bucer's *De Regno Christi* is useful, if incomplete. It omits most of his exposition of the 7th Commandment. I understand why, for space reasons. The drawback is that the reader is not engaged with Bucer's groundbreaking work on divorce and remarriage. While such a view was originally aimed at Roman Catholicism, it would be very useful reading today as some in the "Young, Restless, and Reformed Camp" are advocating a similar Romanist view (John Piper, for one). Bucer's discussion of the Kingdom of Christ is not as polished as later discsussions. His advocating of something similar to a theonomic socialism (yes, I said those two words!) should provide interesting discussions for social reform

Melanchthon is very articulate with Luther's ideas. Perhaps more so than Luther at times. A must read for anyone wanting to understand Christianity.
