This flawed hero shows that God uses failures in his church for his own glory.


Thomas Cranmer’s life is perhaps best known for a decision he made that he later regretted and deeply repented of. But his final legacy is the truth that he held on to the last.


Uncover his involvement in the religious and political upheavals of the 16th century. He courageously navigated the treacherous waters of Henry VIII’s court and marriages, aided the separation of the Church of England from Roman Catholic authority and was instrumental in the development of the Book of Common Prayer, which brought uniformity and accessibility to English worship practices.


Compelling storytelling draws young readers into the dramatic events of Cranmer’s life, including his trials and eventual martyrdom under Queen Mary I. Despite facing intense persecution, Cranmer’s steadfast faith and dedication to reforming the church never wavered and he had a lasting impact on English spirituality and worship.


The Trailblazer series collects great stories from Christians of the past and delivers them to the young people of today.  This gripping and astonishing story from David Luckman will challenge young readers to commit to God as Cranmerdid.
