really liked it

This book is good but too short (and uneven) to be an adequate brief history. It’s excellent for a while – a broad brush approach with important, illustrative details and valuable insights. Then it’s sometimes sets of short strings of details without strong links or much analysis. It gets very good again at points, but it isn’t the one short work on the Reformation if you're only going to read one. Still, it’s well worth reading. Collinson asks a lot of good questions and challenges assumptions and received wisdoms, clearly the results of deep study and reflection on the subject.
