This review is from: Thomas Cranmer: A Life (Paperback)
I was recommended to read this by an Irish Anglican presbyter courrently resident in the States. A very detailed account of Cranmer's life which gives great insights into how he developed spiritually. His own uncertainties his internal doubts and self questionings and his desire to carry all with him came over very clearly. And of course he left us with the foundations of the 1662 BCP which we may love for its language and/or the theology it expresses, in my case the latter. As much as this kind of biography can be I found it stimulating and almost gripping.
