Editorial Reviews

Review


"A remarkably rich and successful survey textbook of the Reformation period....He has quite literally broken the mold of the traditional textbook layout for this topic; it deserves serious consideration by anyone interested in focusing a course on the religious issues of the Reformation....It is stimulating and suggestive, and is based on a truly amazing range of scholarship."--Sixteenth Century Journal


"This is the first comprehensive textbook on the Reformation to take popular religion seriously. Moreover, it is not dominated by Luther and Calvin, as the radical groups and smaller sects get equal treatment. Above all, it is refreshing to find a text that does not start from the premise that protestantism was inevitable or even desired by the laity."--Mack P. Holt, George Mason University


"First impressions of this book are very good. It seems to combine a thorough grounding in both traditional and modern approaches to the Reformation. The writing is clear and straightforward....I predict that this book...will be around for a long time."--Mark Noll, Wheaton College


"A thorough, well-researched text. It should prove to be highly valuable as a required text in junior colleges and universities. One of the best available works."--Rev. Dr. Michael B. Simmons, Auburn University at Montgomery


"Clear, decisive, scholarly, readable--this is a splendid summary of recent scholarship about the Reformation. Cameron warns that he will deal with the Reformation movements, not Europe in the age of Reform, and he does exceptionally well what he has indicated."--Philip L. Kintner, Grinell College

Format: Paperback
"The Reformation", by Euan Cameron is a book presenting his thesis for the start of this period of religious and social upheaval. His aim is to give the background and the causes for the reformation and the perhaps even draw conclusions upon the outcome of 'modern' Europe.
Cameron claims the backing of two schools, the socio-economic and the history ideas in forming this book. While he says that the two seperate have many of their own strengths he also points out that they have their faults. In the face of this he combines the ideas and approaches of both schools in this book.
The Reformation by starts with a classical introduction of the popular piety during the late middles ages. The two positions, that the period before the Reformation was characterised by an increased secularisation of society. That religion was an important factor in the lives of the people and that they actually great in their respect for the church. He draws the best points of both arguments and concludes the first chapter with a new thesis somewhat combining the old and also bringing in new aspects.
This is the process which Cameron proceeds throughout the book. Taking opposing views and resolving them to make the picture fit within his story. He starts with the background of the reformation, society, history, etc. Then Reformers and their messages are discussed with the same counter-argumentation scheme. In his third section he presents the establishment of the reformation churches, again with arguments by different historians concerning the coalition between the politicians and theologians. And finally he conculudes with a discussion of the frustration of late reformers and the second generation of reformers.

"The Reformation", by Euan Cameron is a book presenting this era religious and social upheaval. His aim is to give the background and the causes for the reformation and the perhaps even draw conclusions upon the outcome of 'modern' Europe.
Cameron's viewpoint comes from two schools, the socio-economic and the history of ideas, in forming this book. While he says that the two schools have many of their own strengths he also points out that they have their faults. In the face of this he combines the ideas and approaches of both schools in this book.
`The Reformation' by Cameron starts with an introduction of the popular piety during the late middles ages. Two positions, that the period before the Reformation was characterised by an increased secularisation of society and that religion was an important factor in the lives of the people -due to their respect for the church are then discussed. He draws the best points of both arguments and concludes the first chapter with a new thesis somewhat combining the old and also bringing in new aspects.
This is the process which Cameron proceeds throughout the book, taking opposing views to create a comprehensive narrative. He starts with the background of the reformation; society, economy, etc. Then Reformers and their messages are discussed with the same counter-argumentation scheme. In his third section he presents the establishment of the Reformation churches concerning the coalition between the politicians and theologians. And finally he conculudes with a discussion of the frustration of late reformers and the second generation of reformers.
What can be seen in this book is that the reformation is a complex and involved event. There seems to be no single approach which will solve all the questions.

I'm sure the content is great, but I couldn't get through it on the kindle because the quality was so bad. Words are differing contrast which is very distracting. I don't have this problem with other books. Also, the footnotes/endnotes are not linked. This ebook seems to have been thrown together with little or no effort to quality. At the price point of over $37, that's inexcusable.
