A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
by Fred G. Zaspel
You’ve probably heard about the trial and execution of Michael Servetus in 16th-century Geneva, but if you know the facts of how the Servetus affair went down, you’re a rare exception to the rule. But now there is one book – one rather brief, accessible, and fascinating book – that will enable you to speak to the subject knowledgably.
Jonathan Moorhead has done all the spadework, and his new book, The Trial of the 16th Century: Calvin & Servetus, fills a much-needed area of study. Please don’t offer too firm an opinion on this subject matter until you’ve read this great little book.
