Publisher's Summary

Relates one of the most remarkable lives in the tumultuous English Reformation. Thomas Cranmer was the first Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, the author of the Book of Common Prayer, and a central figure in the English Protestant Reformation. Few theologians have led such an eventful life: Cranmer helped Henry VIII break with the pope, pressed his vision of the Reformation through the reign of Edward VI, was forced to recant under Queen Mary, and then dramatically withdrew his recantations before being burned alive. This lively biography by Leslie Williams narrates Cranmer's life from the beginning, through his education and history with the monarchy, to his ecclesiastical trials, and eventual martyrdom. Williams portrays Cranmer's ongoing struggle to reconcile his two central loyalties - allegiance to the crown, and fidelity to the Reformation faith - as she tells his fascinating life story.

Interesting Biography. Nice narration

I didn't know much about Cranmer. Helpful biography that touches on all the high points without excessive detail. Solid narration by Zoutendam. Beautiful voice.

Need a new Narrator!

Great Story but VERY POOR narration!
Very disappointing! Expected so much more. Wish Audible had reviewed this audio book before posting online. 😢
