"Jonathan Dean’s eloquent and enlightening portraits of ten ‘icons of faithfulness’ from the Reformation - clerical and lay, male and female, Protestant and Catholic - are intended to facilitate a dialogue between modern Christians and their forebears from a fractured and traumatized age. This is ecumenism of a robust and courageous kind, not looking to erase or minimize past differences, but holding out the hope that sincere efforts to understand Christian integrity in an era of conflict can help illuminate our own difficult path to unity." -- Professor Peter Marshall, Department of History, University of Warwick
