About Martin Bucer: Unsung Hero
  of the Reformation

Paperback, 6.14x9.21, 268 pages, $19.95




"Martin Bucer is the premier unsung hero of the Protestant Reformation. A modern, accessible,
biography of Bucer is long overdue. I am delighted that historian Dr. David Lawrence has
undertaken this work. I know of no one better suited for the task. Like his subject, he is
passionate about theology and worship, and thorough in his scholarship. His book is a must read
for anyone interested in understanding and advancing the cause of Christ."
          Rev. Charles Bradley Pastor, Hopewell Presbyterian Church, Columbia, Tennessee

"Martin Bucer's significant role in the Reformation Movement has often been overlooked and
neglected by historians. The lack of historical studies about this sixteenth century German
reformer has left a major void in Reformation scholarship. David Lawrence has rendered a
valuable service by providing his account of Bucer's life. Professor Lawrence is a dedicated
historian, a longtime student of the German Reformation, and a skillful writer who is eminently
qualified to pursue this study. His research in both Europe and the United States will add to the
respect that his book is sure to garner."

About the Author

"David Lawrence has a Ph.D. in European History from the University of Kansas and has
taught History of Greece, History of Rome, Medieval Europe, Renaissance and
Reformation, as well as several other courses for over twenty years at Lipscomb University
in Nashville, Tennessee. His doctoral dissertation was on Erasmus, and he has published
articles on him and the Protestant Reformation. David is eminently qualified to analyze and
interpret the period, including the role of Martin Bucer, and I often say that he has
forgotten more than I have ever learned."
