Christopher Catherwood, a writer abreast of ongoing historical study of the period and aware of the spiritual issues hanging on the chain of events, tracks five major players from the cradle to the grave: Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, Cranmer, Knox. Each in his way was a watershed figure, and Catherwood's vivid profiling of them will help to keep their memory green.

Reading this was a joy, it was short and witty, containing enough detail to be obviously informative and well researched yet it spoke in non-academic language expressing its message easily, confidently and vividly. It was easy to be drawn into the story as the pace was quick, well structured and modern in its approach.
