I have not finished reading this book, but it has quickly become obvious that this a biography which far surpasses the majority of books dedicated to sixteenth-century Protestant reformers. The cover photography is stunning, and inside are more full-color photographs and maps. The book itself is thoroughly researched and annotated. The main body of text is divided very ...more

I wholeheartedly recommend this beautiful biography! What an amazing follower of Christ! I loved learning about the gentle, humble Viret and in the process gained a deep appreciation for this great Reformer.

It's like a window into the hearts of these ...more

The richness and impact of Viret's life is to large to encompass in a sentence, but the fact that his life and legacy are still remembered half a millennium later bear

A most excellent book about a most humble servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is not simply a biography about a lesser known reformer, it also includes beautiful color pictures, a poem about this reformer (a truly great poem), a bibliography of his works, as well as a riveting description of Pierre Viret and his life lived for Christ's glory and kingdom work.

I believe this is my favorite book I have read this year, by far. I want a copy for my own bookshelf now! It may even be in the baby nam

Thank you RA Sheats for this well-written and inspiring biography of a peace-maker and disciple-maker who, in humility and fear before God, and with a deep abiding love for His church, turned France and Switzerland upside-down, and thereby turned them right-side-up.
Reading this testimony of God’s work in Viret’s life has been instructive for me in several ways: Viret maintained integrity in his commitment to the ways of God to the end; his love for people, both converted and unconverted (even hi
