(p.67) 7 Salvation

W. P. Stephens

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the question of salvation at the heart of the Reformation. For Zwingli, the roles of Erasmus and humanism were important factors both in his path to faith and in his theological development. The strong emphasis on God in Zwingli's theology is characteristic of his view of salvation which he saw as from god an in God. This also affected his understanding of man and sin. Zwingli affirmed man's corruption and his incapacity to contribute to his own salvation. His attack on idolatry focused the attention in trust in God against everything else.
