William’s text is judicious, well written, and quietly inspirational. The length is perfect for those who want a good feel for the Reformer and the events surrounding his life and ministry, with the author providing judicious summaries at certain intersections when the details of court and ecclesiastical affairs would bog down the narrative. I felt that I really “got to know” Cranmer on some level while reading this text. I’m not an Episcopalian and believe this text should be read widely in the Christian church - just as accounts of John Wesley would benefit not only Methodists but the church in general. The volume includes endnotes, an index, and an annotated bibliography. One curiosity: Perhaps I missed it, but after reading the work I’m not quite sure of the significance of the main title, “Emblem of Faith Untouched.” Highly recommended.
