Thomas CranmerJohn Macaulay, via The Good Book Stall
Hamer has produced a really useful short guide to the life of Thomas Cranmer. It has only one hundred and twenty six pages which include; a timeline, nine chapters, recommended further reading and a very helpful glossary of some of the terms used.
Hamer’s aim is to “assess his (Cranmer’s) life from the perspective of a twenty first century evangelical’. (Page 12) Cranmer is seen in the context of his massive contribution to the English church scene of today, especially of the Anglican Church.
The book is a real eye opener to life in the sixteenth century church. Crammer’s journey to becoming the leader of the church in England is laid out along with the scheming of his enemies which eventually resulted in him being burnt at the stake.
This is a ‘warts and all’, account of Cranmer’s life; his secret wife, his failure to stand up to Henry at times, his misreading of people and situations are all written about. Alongside that there are recorded his accomplishments in regard to making the Bible available to all, his reforms and finally his heroic death.
This is an easy book to read; it will inform you about one of the most turbulent times in English church history, and will leave you thanking God for men like Cranmer.
