Martin Bucer (1491-1551)
Today, February 28, is the anniversary of the death of Martin Bucer, one of the most significant of the Protestant Reformers. It seemed like a good time to mention once again one of the best biographies I've ever read - Martin Greschat's biography of Bucer. It's not the best theological biography I've read. Peter Brown's biography of Augustine still holds that place of honor, but Greschat's biography is excellent. So, if you are looking for something to read that will give you some great insight into the Protestant Reformation, don't overlook this one.
