Linda Stuckrath Gottschalk, Pleading for Diversity. The Church Caspar Coolhaes Wanted [Reformed Historical Theology 44]. Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, Göttingen 2017, 314 pp. ISBN 9783647552804. € 90; US$ 113.The German-Dutch Protestant preacher Caspar Coolhaes (c. 1534–1615) was, according to Linda Stuckrath Gottschalk, at once Reformed and anti-confessional, a committed Christian who pleaded for theological diversity, and a Spiritualist who was nevertheless preoccupied with ecclesiology.
