The Peter Martyr Reader

John Patrick Donnelly, Frank James III, & Joseph C. McLelland, eds.

This handy paperback is an anthology of chapters taken from each of the volumes of the series. Chapters include Martyr’s views on the scope of theology, the study of theology, the authority of scripture, human nature, human happiness, the knowledge of God, the person of Christ, justification and faith, the Lord’s Supper, views on music and songs, predestination, free will, providence, moral virtue, civil magistrates, and prayer.

The accessibility of the Reader is enhanced by helpful notes and indexes of topics, classical references, and biblical citations; the introductions to the sixteen chapters, however, are quite terse. All in all, this Reader serves as a splendid invitation to deeper explorations in the Peter Martyr Library.

—John L. Farthing
