Useful Biography William Boekestein has written a much needed little biography of the important Swiss Reformer Ulrich Zwingli, part EP’s Bitesize Biography series.

Boekestein due to my experience with his prior children's works on the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession and the Canons of Dort. I commend these works to you if you have not already had the pleasure of reading through them.I knew that Rev. Boekestein was an able historian in light of my former comments on his prior works but I didn't expect
