5.0 out of 5 stars Says exactly what it does on the cover., 28 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Thomas Cranmer (Bitesize Biographies) (Paperback)
Being keen on church history and having read Colin Hammers excellent biography on Ann Boleyn I was very keen to read this one and I was not disappointed. This is a great introduction to the life of Thomas Cranmer. If you're looking for something more detailed, then look elsewhere, because this does exactly what it says on the cover. It is a 'Bitesize' biography and as such is a very good short introduction to the subject in opening it up to people who would not necessarily read a longer book. In my opinion it fully succeeds in doing this, hence the five stars! It certainly gives the background to the turbulent times that Thomas Cranmer lived in. But its real strength is giving us a taste of what motivated him and what his reasoning was in what he did even when it proved controversial as it did where Henry's divorce from Catherine of Aragon was concerned. But what also comes across, despite the flaws and the understandable timidity of some of his actions is that underneath it all this was a man who had reformed convictions and in the end showed exceptional bravery in his defence of the gospel. As such Colin Hammer is to be commended for giving us such an excellent introduction to such a man
