Reviews - What do customers think about The Reformation in England - Volume 2?
Reformation in England May 18, 2007
My review on this book at this time is based on it being read on a program called "reading circle" on Family Radio. It confirmed and gave more information on the history of protestantism in England. As someone who was born into an Anglican family, I was thrilled to learn about how I have come to be a christian. It was fascinating to come to understand how God Almighty had raised and used different people in the furthering of His Word. The courage and bravery displayed by the people living at this time in history brought me to tears many times. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning about the reformation of the church.
Fascinating Historical Drama Jan 11, 2001
The Reformation in England Vol. 1 is highly readable and entertaining. It first reviews the spiritual state of England prior to the Reformation and culminates with the Catholic Cardinal Wolsey's fall from favor. The story takes you from chanting druids, to pious men preaching, to dazzling court palaces, to a haughty despotic monarch, to smothering piles where faithful Christians are being burned, to the cunning and craft of a pope attempting to regain England, "his flock". The author weaves throughout this book character sketches of men and women who were engaged in this spectacular historical drama. We meet studious Tyndale, sterling Wycliffe, and scholarly Latimer. You will also encounter men and women ascending the steps of power -- Thomas Cromwell, crafty Henry VIII, gracious Catherine of Aragon, vivacious Ann Boleyn, the devout Catholic Sir Thomas More, Pope Clement, and Cardinal Wolsey. These men and women are just some of the numerous characters in this fascinating story. This is one of my very favorite books! I love history, and this historical narrative is written exceedingly well and is fun to read! It is certainly not a dull, dry statement of facts, but an intriguing, accurate and fascinating story centering on an important era in history, and delivered from a decidedly Protestant Christian perspective.
