THOMAS CRANMER, BY DIARMAID MACCULLOCH
MacCulloch does a brilliant job of telling about the life and legacy of Cranmer. More than that, his use of primary sources, personal correspondence, and official records paints a vivid picture of those spread across England and Europe during the Reformation. I am so glad that MacCulloch takes the time to go beyond boring detail and dry facts and tries to speak to the motivations behind the historical figures. I love this biography.
