    1. The biographies as biographies were just so so, and Ryle s writing style is likewise fairly standard for the 19th century, anyway The true value of this short volume comes in the first chapter, in which Ryle engages the question why were our Reformers burned That is, why were a generation of English Christians persecuted and executed Ryle gives two answers to this a general answer and a specific answer The general reason the Reformers were burned is that the Roman Catholic Church burned them.I a [...]


    2. First sentence THERE are certain facts in history which the world tries hard to forget and ignore These facts get in the way of some of the world s favourite theories, and are highly inconvenient.Premise plot Five English Reformers is a collection of six sketches or essays The first essay is Why Were Our Reformers Burned It gives an overview of this period of history focusing not just on the who, the where, the when, the how but THE WHY It highlights nine martyrs.The collection also includes fiv [...]


    3. J C Ryle s Five English Reformers is an engaging and helpful introduction to the English Reformation Informed Protestants are aware of the Reformation in Germany and Geneva but are far less aware of the Reformation in England They are acquainted with the names Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli, but may be completely ignorant of the names John Hooper, Rowland Taylor, Hugh Latimer, John Bradford, and Nicholas Ridley These five men were used mightily by God in the 16th century All five of these men were [...]


    4. I don t know if this was how these chapters were originally published but they seemed a bit repetitions Nevertheless, excellent biographies of Hooper, Taylor, Latimer, Bradford, and Ridley, five Marian martyrs who by God s grace, lit such a candle in England as I trust shall never be put out One of the best things about the book is how relevant Ryle made it for his readers These weren t merely biographies but a cry to rouse ourselves and watch lest we lose all that they stood for by conceding to [...]


    5. An interesting look at some of the prominent English Reformers who were martyred during the reign of Mary Ryle sketches a biography of each and then goes on to give a sample of their writing The motivation for the book was to show how transubstantiation was the very thing the martyrs died for In his own day, there was a resurgence of this doctrine in the English church Valuable to any interested in the English Reformation or the Lord s supper.


    6. This book makes you appreciate what true Christians had to go through during the reign of Bloody Mary in England It is a shame these talented men and authors could not have lived longer and contributed to Christianity through their preaching and writings JC Ryle warns his readers how cruel non Christians can be to Christians for their beliefs He focuses on the lives of 5 devoted men, although hundreds were burnt at the stake for their beliefs during this timeframe.


    7. The content is excellent but the writing style doesn t make this a very enjoyable read Apparently these chapters were first produced for use in a magazine in the 1890 s It would probably have been better had a little work gone into editing this before being produced as a book.


    8. While other reviews below about this not being the best written book given they were originally individual pieces written for a magazine, and given that he quotes a lot from Foxe which is written in older English this is an excellent book in understanding the issues at play in the 16th century English Reformation The introductory chapter and the chapters of John Hooper and Hugh Latimer are by far the best and really describe the state of England s religion pre Reformation in a way that gives you [...]


    9. Written during the tractarian controversy, in which a segment of Anglicans were moving in a Roman Catholic direction, Ryle looks the lives and deaths of five Anglicans John Hooper, Rowland Taylor, Hugh Latimer, John Bradford, Nicholas Ridley who were burned for their beliefs during the reign of Mary I In an introductory chapter Ryle makes the case the early Anglican reformers were burned for opposing the doctrines that the Anglo Catholics say the Anglican church ought to embrace As with all of R [...]


    10. Decent biographies wrapped around and apologetic against Catholic theologyThe actual biographies of the five men highlighted are quite short, though indeed intriguing I had hoped for much on their lives, but the author instead used their lives and theology as a defense against encroaching Catholic doctrine 300 years after the Reformation So it was informative, the biographies were engaging, though short I guess my only complaint is that it was a different book than I had hoped, but I can t blam [...]


    11. Ryle is always a profitable read, but I could only take this book in small doses because of the violence done to these evangelical reformers and so many others like them Oh to be willing to die for the gospel These stories will make you appreciate the liberty we yet have to read Scripture in our own language and evangelize without fear of imprisonment and death.


    12. Characters behind the English Reformation28 March 2013 Well, since I have a couple of hours to go before my plane to London begins boarding, and as I am sitting at a table looking out over the staging area at least around my gate at the Frankfurt International Airport I won t write in German, despite being in Germany, but then again my German isn t all that good I thought I might kill some time writing about the English Reformation namely because it has been a while since I read this book so I c [...]


    13. I really enjoyed this book on the five English Reformers However, in the kindle edition there were a lot of spelling errors and oddly formatted sentences I would recommend the paperback over the kindle.


    14. This book looks at five of the major Marian martyrs and also includes an overview chapter These men certainly deserve to be remembered and Ryle makes the reasons for their deaths very clear There is also a fair amount of background about prevailing religious conditions before the Reformation This book would, however, be much improved by editing It consists of six talks and a fair amount of the material is repeated If the repetition were removed then the book would be a smoother read Like many ot [...]


    15. You really feel his gratitude to these men and his love for Jesus seep through these pages, as he deals with each John Hooper, Rowland Taylor, Hugh Latimer, John Bradford and Nicholas Ridley He helpfully narrates their life, their character and their death in whatever detail is possible But for some, Ryle also spends time quoting some of their work, so that you are in no doubt as to their opinions which is very helpful.Seems to be written as a polemic against growth of Catholic practices in the [...]


    16. Ryle s little work is a good introduction There is nothing groundbreaking, just an overview of the five English martyr reformers The introductory essay was the best part in my opinion.
