"One of the most important books on the Elizabethan church ever written.....I recommend this book very highly."--Susan Wabuda, Fordham University"Marshalling an impressive array of sources, the author strives to sketch the way things actually were in the English Church under Elizabeth I and James I."--Southwestern Journal of Theology"This is a book that no scholar who is interested in its subject can afford to miss."--Church Times"Professor Collinson's ability to enter into the consciousness of Elizabethan and jacobean clergymen, his vast learning, his deep humanity, his scrupulous fairness...his courtesy to those with whom he disagrees--in all these he is a model."--Times Literary Supplement"A stirring event in the rediscovery of Early Modern England. Unmistakably the work of a historian who has reflected on his subject for the better part of a working lifetime."--London Review of Books
