Item Description...
Overview
Despite their important roles in the development of their respective branches of the Protestant church, the second-generation Reformers have generally not received their historical due. Philip Melanchthon, Theodore Beza, and Heinrich Bullinger were the close associates and direct successors of Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli, yet historians and theologians have largely devoted their research to the teachings and writings of the latter. In his day, Melanchthon was often misunderstood and criticized by followers of Martin Luther as well as by Reformers in other countries. As a moderate who often sought to find a mediating position between conflicting points of view and who refused to be drawn into disputes over matters of secondary concern, he found his principles and character repeatedly challenged by critics on several sides. But he also influenced many outside of his own German Lutheran circles and had an impact that transcended national boundaries. The essays brought together in this volume focus on Melanchthon's far-reaching influence. Perhaps no other Reformer in the sixteenth century can claim to have moved as far as he beyond the boundaries of their respective churches. The authors who contribute to this volume, including Timothy Wengert, Lyle Bierma, Richard Muller, and John Schneider, look particularly on this aspect of Melanchthon's work. In a similar and related manner, several of the essayists consider the lasting impact of his classical humanist education, which allowed him to bridge the divide between the Renaissance and the Reformation. This volume grew out of a conference, sponsored by the H. Henry Meeter Center for Calvin Studies. The scholars gathered there, on the 500th anniversary of Melanchthon's birth, were particularly concerned to reassess the place and importance of Melanchthon's contributions to the theology of the Reformation. These essays, while of particular interest to students of the Reformation and Lutheran church history, will surely open up Melanchthon's theology to a wider audience for the first time. An accessible investigation of his thought and its influence on the Reformation is long overdue, and the reader will find this volume richly rewarding. This collection is published as part of Baker's series, Texts and Studies in Reformation and Post-Reformation Thought.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Theologian Without A Church Home?  Aug 18, 2005
Melanchthon was predicted by Luther to drift moderate so he knew that Lutherans would not follow Philip which happened. The Reformed liked him for some of his teachings but not others. So, no confessional body truly reveres and follows all of Philip.

Thus, this fine contribution of essays on the topic primarily by Reformed with a few Lutheran views thrown in.

There is fine essay on Melanchthon's influence on Calvin by Richard Mueller as well as an excellent contribution by John Schneider on his rhetoric.

As was quoted in the book: how could such a peacable man of his age become in historical reflection such a man of such embattlement? Moderate brings this with it. Middle might be the most dangerous place to be.
