Overview

"Hugh Latimer (1490-1555), with Cranmer and Ridley, is remembered as one of the most notable martyrs of the Reformation. He was fearless in an age of grim persecutions, more noted for candour than for tact. Once he had been convinced of the truth of the movement for reform, nothing could prevent him from declaring it. But he was an much concerned about the social evils of his time as about theological verities. Above all, in his sermons he could communicate his beliefs with superb assurance. In forceful language, interspersed with homely images and references to his own everyday experiences, he made sure that his audience, whether King and court or rural peasantry, was left in no doubt of his meaning. He knew what men felt, without sparing their feelings. Latimer's is as much a living voice today as it was in his own time."--BOOK JACKET.
