Ulrich Zwingli (Review)
This review is for the book "Ulrich Zwingli" by William Boekestein, part of the Bitesize Biographies series. This is the second book I have read in the Bitesize Biographies series. I really enjoyed the other one I read (John Newton) and I enjoyed this one as well. I had never heard of Ulrich Zwingli before reading this book.
I feel that Boekestein did an incredible job outlining Zwingli's life. Zwingli was a Reformationist in Switzerland in the early 1500's. Boekestein begins the book with Zwingli's birth and introducing his family background and lifestyle growing up. The rest of the book follows his journey as a Reformer.
I enjoyed reading this book even though I knew nothing of Ulrich Zwingli. It was very interesting to learn more about him. This would be a really helpful book for writing a report or learning more about famous spiritual leaders.
Thank you to Cross Focused Reviews for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
