"A timely collection of official formularies relating to the English Reformation" The Expository Times "Magnificient work, which must (and will) prove itself by generations of use as an indispensable tool of English Reformation studies. No recent book has come my way of greater intrinsic value in its own sphere than this - or one which will repay more abundantly the price asked for its range, its detail and its length." Epworth Review "It is a most welcome contribution to the study of theology and ecclesiastical history, and will establish itself as an essential reference for all students of the Tudor and Stuart experience of the Protestant faith" David Parnham "It will serve at least three very useful purposes: first, a salutary source of information; second, it should provide a stark reminder to those engaged in the various ministries of the Church of England: third, it will remind over-secularized modern analysts that the Reformation, even in England, did have a lot to do with religion, its understanding and practice." Theology "A well designed collection which will meet a widely felt need ... probably the most comprehensive one of its type to appear this century ... outstandingly useful." R.A. Houlbrooke, in Parliamentary History "A very useful primary source collection ... The timespan is generously conceived ... From a scholarly point of view admirable, and the standard of editing is very high" Teaching History "This is an essential reference work for anyone interested in this important period of church history."
