'Professor Stephens has put English readers in his debt by his exposition based on detailed study.
' James K. Cameron, University of St Andrew's, The Heythrop Journal
'The issue of a paperback edition ... makes more widely available one of the most important works of recent British Reformation scholarship. Its lucid exposition of Zwingli's religious ideas ... valuable indexes and comprehensive annotated bibliography make it an invaluable resource to anyone approaching study of this Reformer, particularly for the first time.
' Alister McGrath, Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, History
'until the appearance of Stephens's book no comprehensive account on a full scale has been written ... Stephens's account of the theology is now the best available comprehensive study in English ... He has shown no serious prejudices, and he has tried to include all aspects and variations in Zwingli's work. It is a worthy study.
' Basil Hall, Journal of Theological Studies'Readers will not find in print a fairer treatment of Zwingli, whose name is often taken in vain, especially on the Lord's Supper. This is a book for students of theology and church history, and others with a keen interest in the Reformation.'David F. Wright, University of Edinburgh, The Evangelical Quarterly
