Another Martin: Martin Bucer and His Peace-making Efforts
a biographical sketch of the Reformer Martin Bucer, and investigates his pastoral practice in detail
About the Lecture
The lecture provides a biographical sketch of the Reformer Martin Bucer, and investigates his pastoral practice in detail, including
- his determined endeavour to bring Luther and Zwingli to agreement on the issue of the nature of the Eucharist;
- his considerable encouragement and careful guidance for the young Calvin; and
- his intentional restraint from being involved in controversies in his later years in England, so as to present a Reformer who practices what he preaches.
