The Liege theologian Andreas Fabricius (1520-1581), Councillor to Albert Duke of Bavaria, besides rephrasing the doctrinal exposition of the Creed, Sacrament, Decalogue, etc., in the form of questions and answers, also added interpretative comments printed in the margins. Fabricius' work proved quite popular, and was often reprinted. Plantin himself issued reprints in 1574, 1583, and 1587. There were at least 10 other reprints between 1591 and 1698.

From the Preface to the first title: "Here, the Unitarian, Universalist, and Christian denominations form the vanguard of the coming Church. These and countless individual thinkers, in and out of the Orthodox ranks, are fusing their thought, scholarship, and piety into one great fraternity, which will create and sustain a Church of broad sympathies, broad humanities, broad hopes, and a broad theology,--a Church, moreover which will accord with, and serve the American ideas of liberty and equality, as no old-world ecclesiastcism or theology can do. This humble volume, for the most part a mere compilation, has been prepared with the hope of increasing the true church sentiment in the hearts of the American people... The work of Protestantism will never be fully accomplished until the prayers and ordinances of the Church have been rescued from the dungeons of medieval scholasticism, and have become the inspiration of all the free

Benjamin Kurtz (1795-1865) Lutheran minister, editor of the Lutheran Observer in Baltimore 1833-58. "Kurtz was one of the most prominent men in the General Synod and, next to his close friend Samuel Simon Schmucker, the chief exponent of `American Lutheranism.' He was one of the founders of the Synod of Maryland and Virginia (1820), of the General Synod (1820), which was organized in his church, and which he twice served as president, and of the Gettysburg Theological Seminary (1825). As a pastor and preacher he was extraordinarily successful, and his position in Washington County, Md. was almost that of a bishop... His knowledge of theology was limited, but he was strongly evangelical, plain-spoken, and fearless, and against liturgical worship and the Lutheran confessions he waged a vigorous polemical war. He advocated a union of the Lutheran and German Reformed Churches. His doctrinal position is fully set forth in his chief book, Why Are You a Lutheran? (1843), which went through ten editions."--Dict. Amer. Biog X:514. We offer his work on prayer.

John Willison (1680-1750) "influential evangelical Church of Scotland minister and author... His devotional works were among the most widely read during the century; his support of and participation in the Cambuslang and Kilsyth revivals (which latter commenced after his sermon on the way back from Cambuslang) were regarded by many as a guarantee of their evangelical orthodoxy... Willison's reputation, however, derives mainly from his devotional works... Willison's writings provide a major starting point for the understanding of the theological and spiritual preoccupations of evangelical thought in the later eighteenth-century Scottish Church."--J.R. McIntosh in Dict. Scottish Church Hist. & Theology, p874.
