With a few caveats, the resulting work is informative, readable, and authoritative. The first chapter introduces Christendom on the eve of the Reformation, painting a picture of the vibrancy and diversity of late medieval Christianity, and challenging simplistic narratives of a corrupt and decaying church which was purified by the Protestant reformation.
The chapter on Calvinism cannot resist the temptation to caricature its subject—a temptation to which many commentators have succumbed. While Calvinism certainly had political outworkings, this hardly seems accurate. On this account, defining the radical wing of the reformation becomes simply a matter of power, namely those anti-Romanists who were not able to secure political support for their programs , The chapter on the Catholic reformation emphasizes the global reach of a vibrant and contextualized Catholicism, in which the New World came to re-Christianize the Old.

This aptly captures the flavor of the book, which succeeds in providing an accurate narrative and a cohesive overall assessment of the Reformation.
