Back cover copy

The Baker History of the Church series is an accessible and authoritative series that has shed light on the roots of the Christian faith and the foundations of the church. Reform and Conflict, the fourth volume in the series, covers AD 1350-1648. An era of dramatic change in church and state, this time period saw significant administrative, moral, and doctrinal reforms that led to both theological and military conflict. Evaluating and interpreting the most recent biblical research and historical scholarship, Reform and Conflict examines the era's lasting impact on the arts, science, economics, political thought, and education. In investigating how the period affected the religious beliefs of every believer, Rudolph W. Heinze shows how this period greatly influenced what Christians believe and practice today. Rudolph W. Heinze (Ph. D., University of Iowa), taught history at Concordia University and was later appointed tutor at Oak Hill College in north London. Now retired, Heinze is adjunct professor at Wheaton College and visiting scholar at Oak Hill. John D. Woodbridge is research professor of church history and the history of Christian thought at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. David F. Wright is professor of patristic and Reformed Christianity at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. Tim Dowley has written and edited many books, including The Lion Handbook to the History of Christianity. He lives in Clapham, South London
