'Ashley Null with great industry has effected an impressive reconstruction of the development of Cranmer's doctrine of repentance... Ashley Null's book is a valuable contribution to our knowledge of Thomas Cranmer's soteriology.' -Journal of Ecclesiastical History'This is a scholarly and learned work, fresh and original. Null has exhausted all source material, some unpublished, and makes a significant contribution to Cranmer studies. He displays an informed, critical judgement, and reaches sound conclusions. His scholarly and helpful footnotes, most of them translated into English, are a valuable feature of the work, lending it authority and colour... helpful summaries at the end of each chapter, and a most informative concluding summary of the whole book.' -ANVIL'A most important work.' -Expository TimesPuppet, Protestant partisan, or Erasmian humanist: which, if any, was Thomas Cranmer? Although he was a key participant in the changes to English life brought about by the Reformation, his reticent nature and lack of extensive personal writings have left a vacuum. For the first time this book examines little-used manuscript sources to reconstruct Cranmer's personal and theological development.
