5.0 out of 5 stars A scholarly counterblast to revisionist historians, 18 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Diarmaid MacCulloch is the perfect antidote to Eamon Duffy and others who seek to minimise the popular support for the Reformation in England. It's lucid and a really good read and well worth getting hold of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good book about a really important time, 29 April 2001
By A Customer
This book is a lively and interesting account of a fascinating period of English history. It gives a good insight into the way in which the English Reformation under Edward VI - the boy king - compared to Josiah and to Solomon - was linked to the continental reform movement, especially to that in Strasbourg. It informs about popular life and political life. It is also a good read.
Cranmer comes out especially well, and I now want to read McCulloch's biography of Cranmer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-written and still interesting, 27 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tudor Church Militant: Edward VI and the Protestant Reformation (Allen Lane History) (Hardcover)
This is now showing its age and MacCulloch has written other books, some embodying much of the same material, on the reign. However, it is still a good read, broadly sympathetic to the the Edwardian reformation but carefully avoiding facile contrasts between the "Good Duke" Somerset and the regime of Northumberland. it helps to explain how Edward VI's reign was transformative and shaped English history thereafter.
