Publisher's Summary

A Renaissance theologist who brought new light to Dutch changes during the Protestant wars against Spain. 

He stood for humanism, children’s rights, and theological ideologies that he wasn’t afraid to spread across the Dutch nation, which was going through some dramatic transformations at that time. His political and theological ideas should not be ignored, and as a Christian philosopher, he has had a huge impact on the distant culture of the Netherlands, Protestantism, and more. 

In this brief introduction to his life and teachings, you will hear about:  

  • His views on the Protestant and Catholic church.  
  • His psychological background, ideas, and perspectives on education.  
  • Why Erasmus was a classical humanist and why he translated the Bible himself.  
  • His conflict with Maarten Luther.  
  • And much more.  

Study this influential theologist and you might actually learn something new you have never considered before.

Decent book

This is a good introduction. A very good text by the late, esteemed professor Huizinga for his compatriot Erasmus. Very enjoyable and a bargain price for what it offers. I liked this book and would recommend it for those who need such type of information.

Clear and Helpful

The editors have done a fantastic job with Erasmus' and Luther's debates. The footnotes they supply are very helpful. I highly suggest to anyone who is wrestling with Calvinism to buy and listen this book.

Wonderful guide

For me, Erasmus came out the victor. I particularly enjoyed how he convincingly demonstrated that "free will" was part of the consensual view of the Church (from the first century up to the fifteenth century); and that consensus would include Augustine!

Excellent Book

Challenging but profitable book. This will make you fall in love with the reformation, with rhetoric, and with primary sources. Erasmus is a very good person to listen.
