Scott Hendrix argues in this book that the sixteenth century reformers all shared the same goal: to Christianize Christendom, that is, to replant authentic Christianity in the vineyard of the Lord, in the same European Christendom which they believed had been devastated by the medieval church. He believes it is more accurate and useful to speak of one Reformation and to locate its diversity in the various theological and practical agendas that were developed to realize the goal of Christianization.

Scott H. Hendrix is James Hastings Nichols Professor of Reformation History and Doctrine at Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey. He is the author of Tradition and Authority in the Reformation and serves on the editorial commitees of the Sixteenth Century Journal, Sixteenth-Century Essays and Studies, and The Lutheran Quarterly.
