This book offers portraits of twenty of the secondary theologians of the Reformation period. In addition to describing a particular theologian, each portrait explores one problem in 16th-century Christian thought. Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, and Radical thinkers are all represented in this volume, which serves as both an introduction to the field and a handy reference for scholars.

Industry Reviews

"If you like to read about the Reformation, you will find in Steinmetz' book an urbane, informative, and well-written account of many of its important but neglected figures."--Review for Religious "Steinmetz has the ability to stress the uniqueness of the individual whom he presents and the scholarship to place him in the broad context of the group to which he belongs and of the reforem movements as a whole."--Concordia Historical Institute Quarterly "The contribution made by each of these 20 individuals is summarized clearly and with scholarly insight...This book will serve as a valuable teaching aid in church history."--Christian Century "Professor Steinmetz has provided us with concise, easily readable, reliable sketches of twenty fascinating Reformation figures."--Christianity Today "This is an superb book and important in many ways not indicated by its title. Here in one volume is cogent treatment of the lives and works of 20 men: five from the late medieval period of Catholic Reform and five each from the Lutheran, Reformed and Radical traditions."--Church History "Anyone who has been faced with the task of introducing sixteenth century men and their ideas to students on this continent will welcome Reforms in the Wings."--Studies in Religion "...the finest introduction to the thought of these secondary reformers in print today."--Choice
