W. P. Stephens

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses some of the characteristics in Zwingli's work as a reformer and some of the emphases in his thought. Two of the most notable characteristics of his theology are that it is biblical and centred in God. The discussion here looks at him as a biblical theologian and social, political, practical, and pastoral reformer. His theology was biblical, yet open to truth wherever it is found. It was centred in the God who has revealed himself in Christ and who is active through the Spirit. The chapter concludes that his theology and ministry embraced society as well as the individual, but its source and goal was the glory of God.

Keywords:   biblical theologian, social reformer, political reformer, practical reformer, pastoral reformer, glory of God
