This book is the first major and exclusive study of the Christian idea of salvation as seen through the eyes of five sixteenth-century English reformers--John Frith, John Hooper, Robert Barnes, John Bradford, and the famous Bible translator, William Tyndale. The author sets their views in context, both historically and intellectually, before engaging in a detailed and clear examination of all the relevant aspects of their thought, from election and justification to the relationship between sacraments and salvation.
