Thanks for

your comments b...fascinating stuff! My daughter bought me a complete book on the Reformation period, but it is like a 1,000 pages long so I haven't cracked it yet. She is a strict Calvinist, and I think maybe we should both look at it together because neither of us realized the rift between Calvin and Luther. I've always had much respect and love for Luther but was never completely comfortable with Calvin, although the Bible certainly supports the doctrine of predestination in many of it's passages...I guess I am most uncomfortable with the way many of his "followers" lift him up almost to the level of prophet, which he most certainly was not...and I don't know a lot about Zwingli either... I guess I have a lot of reading to do! :)
