Great book I might say. I have it myself in paperback, although I cannot find it now.

You know, I'm tempted to buy this, but I get reading about the Reformation that I don't think it would be good for me. :/ The snippet that I read on Amazon about the changes being forced upon the people from higher up, rather than brought about by the people's will, reminded me of an anecdote that an old priest told me, about when he turned the altar around and people were telling him that they didn't want to worship like Protestants. He basically told them, that was the way it was now.:rolleyes:
