A pretty good introductory effort, long on pictures though short on prose. This would be the sort of book you would hand someone who asked, "What would be a good book on the Reformation if I know absolutely nothing?"

Some may not like the book as a stand alone volume, but there are other, longer historians of the Reformation that are superior for students wanting something heartier. As an introductory walk through the period, this is a solid volume.

A short book but still I learned a great deal . . . helped me put some of today's happenings with the Islamic fundamentalistics in better context considering what the Catholics and Protestants did to each other in the 1500s. This gave good overview of the Reformation in various countries and I particularly appreciated the many color illustrations, paintings of the major figures, photographs of important places, etc.
