This volume contains two highly important writings of the period of the Protestant Reformation. Melanchthon's book Loci communes theologici
, the first Protestant dogmatics, as it is sometimes called, represents the work of a young man writing at the very beginning of the Lutheran Reformation. Bucer's work On the Kingdom of Christ
, the first Protestant treatise of social ethics, is the product of a mature man standing on the verge of old age. Bucer and Malanchthon, next to Luther, are the most important figures in the Protestant Reformation and should be more widely read in the English speaking world. 406 Pages. Softcover from Westminster John Knox Press.
