More About the Author

Scott H. Hendrix was born in 1942 at Columbia, South Carolina, and earned a Ph.D. in Reformation studies from Tübingen University in Germany. In 2007 he retired from a professorship in Reformation history at Princeton Seminary and now lives in North Carolina.
His interest in the Reformation stems from growing up in Lutheran churches and from college and seminary courses in history. During his teaching career, he received a Fulbright research grant and other awards, but some of the books listed here were also stimulated by questions from students and by the urge to discover the motives that led many medieval Europeans to cast aside the religion of their ancestors in order to adopt new versions of Christianity offered by the reformers of sixteenth-century Europe.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A. Wood on February 10, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book is a much needed breath of fresh air for the student and scholar of the sixteenth century and particularly the various reform movements that swept Europe during this time. The author successfully and convincingly corrects the tendency to zealously differentiate the reform movements (Protestant and Catholic) which many do in a way that makes ecumenical dialogue and clear-eyed analysis almost impossible. I have been guilty of this tendency and it was instructive to read this book which provides a gentle but authoritative contextual "push" in a more authentically historical direction.

The vantage point that this work offers is invaluable for a proper understanding of the legacy and heritage of the Reformation and seems to me to offer the potential for the opening of more ecumenical doors in the future, between and among Protestants as well as Catholics. The goals of the Reformation were as basic and timeless as the church's goals today, and an honest appraisal of the Reformation and its legacy can offer much in terms of cross-cultural and interfaith dialogue, even while valuing and respecting the individual reform movements to which many of us trace our faith tradition as well as the unifying themes that most Christians sought to lift up at the time and continue to today.
