 About the Book 

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. Jerry L. Gaw, Ph.D. Professor of History, Lipscomb University 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 Bucers 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 Bucers 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. Timothy Johnson, Ph. D. Professor of History, Lipscomb University
