This is the first comprehensive study of Zwingli's theology in English and the first extended presentation of the theology of this Swiss Reformer (1484-1531) since Pollet's work in 1950. Making use of the main secondary studies in German, French, and English, and drawing from the whole range of Zwingli's writings, the book covers the central themes of his theology--unfolding them historically as well as systematically--and sets it in the context of his life and ministry.

Next to Luther himself, Ulrich Zwingli (1484-1531) was probably the most important and certainly the most influential of the early Protestant reformers. His Commentary on True and False Religion, addressed to King Francis I of France and published by the printer Froschauer in Zurich in 1525, contrasted what Zwingli regarded as the true religion of the Protestants, grounded in Scripture, with the false religion of tradition and reason advocated by the opponents of the Reformation. In twenty-nine chapters Zwingli discussed all of the principal topics of Christian theology, from the meaning of the word "religion" itself to the role and place of images in Christian worship. All the disputed issues of the early Reformation--the doctrine of Church and ministry, baptism, penance, eucharist, the nature of civil authority--are explained lucidly and concisely. The Commentary makes clear not only the grounds for Zwingli's break with the medieval Catholic tradition in which he had been raised but also the nature of his disagreements with Erasmus, Luther, and the Swiss Anabaptists. The result is the most significant dogmatic work which Zwingli ever wrote and the most important systematic statement of Reformed theology before Calvin's Institutes.

First released in 1988, this 25th Anniversary Edition of Timothy George’s Theology of the Reformers includes a new chapter and bibliography on William Tyndale, the reformer who courageously stood at the headwaters of the English Reformation. Also included are expanded opening and concluding chapters and updated bibliographies on each reformer. Theology of the Reformers articulates the theological self-understanding of five principal figures from the period of the Reformation: Martin Luther, Huldrych Zwingli, John Calvin, Menno Simons, and William Tyndale. George establishes the context for their work by describing the spiritual climate of their time. Then he profiles each reformer, providing a picture of their theology that does justice to the scope of their involvement in the reforming effort. George details the valuable contributions these men made to issues historically considered pillars of the Christian faith: Scripture, Jesus Christ, salvation, the church, and last things. The intent is not just to document the theology of these reformers, but also to help the church of today better understand and more faithfully live its calling as followers of the one true God. Through and through, George’s work provides a truly integrated and comprehensive picture of Christian theology at the time of the Reformation.

Zwingli A Reformed Theologian

Zwingli  A Reformed Theologian

He found no higher honor than to give his life for Christ. Often misunderstood, long neglected, Huldrych Zwingli is today regaining recognition as the first Reformed theologian.

Four centuries removed, one leading Swiss theologian brings into contemporary focus the life and thought of another. Zwingli, as interpreted by Courvoisier, speaks to the problems of our time with the same clarity and force which helped shape the course of the Reformation. Vigorous, totally orientated to the service of his "captain" and Savior, Zwingli grounded his theology in the Word of God as revealed in Scripture. He attacked the problems of his time--reforming the church and leading it to become the instrument through which the world hears the gospel. Zwingli gave meaning to the phrase "living under grace" in every area of life. On the relation of church and state, for example, he believed that all things on earth receive their ultimate meaning through grace. He believed that the church must affirm its presence in the world. He found no higher honor than to give his life for Christ. Often misunderstood, long neglected, Huldrych Zwingli is today regaining recognition as the first Reformed theologian.
