Book Description:

First time ever available in English, this "Reformation handbook of pastoral theology" sets out Bucer's ideal of a godly Christian society, and was written solely for the Lord's glory and the improvement of his church at this time when Christ's sheep are so deplorably scattered. He commended it to the Christian consideration of all God's children, asking only that nothing should be judged according to carnal standards, but everything according to the word of the Lord. And added, "May the Lord grant that it will be of much use for his kingdom." In Strasbourg they were implemented in the French refugee community pastured from 1538 to 1541 by the young John Calvin, who had a great respect for Bucer and worked closely with him.

Nearly 500 years later we can still benefit greatly from Bucer's spiritual wisdom as he sets out, in a vivid and persuasive way, biblical principles for church life, ministry, and discipline.
