Great account, wish Michael had read it though!

A great account of the Reformation, I will be going on to the lectures of the Puritans. The only downside is that it would have been much better if read by the author. The American narrator just didn't deliver,and stumbled over some pronunciation.

Brilliantly written, but strangely narrated.

The Unquenchable Flame: Discovering the Heart of the Reformation is brilliantly researched, and written in an accessible and most enjoyable way. However the narrator sounds more like a computer than a human, and would have benefitted from the author narrating it instead.
