Ulrich Zwingli biography is informative work on the Reformation

zwingliUlrich Zwingli, a contemporary of Martin Luther, was instrumental in bringing the Reformation to Switzerland.  It is an informative book about an important, but forgotten, figure in religious history who was overshadowed by Luther and Calvin.  In spite of his important contribution to the Reformation, Zwingli’s moral character quite possibly kept him from being more well known.  If you want to know what really happened during the Reformation, this is a necessary biography to read.  It is short and to the point and will provide additional information about a man who brought much insight into the Scriptures and encouraging the people to read the Bible for themselves.  William Boekestein gives a good deal of information about the Reformation in addition to his insight into the life and times of Ulrich Zwingli.
