By the end of his brief life Ulrich Zwingli would change the religious landscape of his home and the world. It wasn't until the last few years of his life that he became a reformer. He fought for truth and righteousness with his mind and pen, he fought for lost souls to hear the good news of Jesus Christ, and at the age of forty-seven, as an army chaplain, he was killed on the battle-field. The Shepherd Warrior, Ulrich Zwingli, fought the good fight.With his last strength he voiced his victory: "They can kill the body but not the soul!"
- honest, but not inspiring
The book is honest about Zwingli's faults, and has good questions for review at the end. This is the first bio I have read on Zwingli, and if this one is accurate, I would probably not read another. It just was not inspiring. Zwingli does not seem to be empowered by the Word of God like Luther was. Perhaps this book is giving the true picture. I will see if John Piper has one of his 1 hr bios on Zwingli to get a 2nd opinion.
I like to hear narrator Joe Geoffrey's kindly voice. He sounds just like the guy that used to narrate old Disney movies about animals.
