I Am Extremely Unimpressed

This volume… which seems so promising… is an absolute disappointment.  And that’s before even opening it and merely reading the table of contents.

How on earth can you have a volume on the Reformation which includes primary sources and completely ignores Zwingli? That’s like having a volume on math and leaving out a discussion of addition.  It is literally incomprehensible, inexcusable, and unforgivable.

  1. As it is a theology book, the theological topics appear in the table of content and not the reformers’ names. But Kindle search found the name Zwingli 427 times in the book.

  2. At the beginning and at the end of the book:
    “Given our desire to build on what we have begun here and to make this work as truthful, faithful, and useful as possible, we invite corrections and suggested improvements from all our readers (be they as small as a typo or as large as suggesting a different text selection that might profitably be substituted). If you desire to submit such a suggestion or correction, please email it to secre-tary@davenantinstitute.org and we will take it under consideration for inclusion in the next revised edition. In the meantime, may this volume be a rich blessing to the church!”

    I can and would defend the regrettable omission of Zwingli, but am open to making modifications in subsequent editions.
