Peter Martyr Vermigli
Born in Florence, Italy, in 1499, Peter
Martyr Vermigli decided that he wanted
to teach God's Word when he grew up.
After many years of study, he became a
well-respected leader in the Roman
Catholic Church, yet he questioned the
church's teachings because he believed
they were contrary to the Bible.
Eventually forced to flee Italy and the
Roman Church, Vermigli joined the
Reformers north of the Alps and devoted
the rest of his life to teaching,
preaching, and writing about the great
truths of the Protestant Reformation. He
lived in many parts of Europe, and he
influenced many of the most important
figures of his times.
This volume in the Christian Biographies
for Young Readers series retells the
story of a servant of Christ who left
behind a postion of prominence in the
Roman Church to courageously join the
cause of the Protestant Reformation.
Enhanced by illustrious, photographs,
and additional information about the
Reformation era, this account shows
young readers how God can use the piety
and talents of one man to advance the
cause of His truth.
