Luther's Reforms

In my opinion Charles Wesley is the finest English hymnwriter, Thomas Cranmer the best liturgist, William Tyndale the most perceptive Bible translator, Hugh Latimer the finest preacher, and the Westminster divines the ablest catechists. Imagine all of these gifted people gathered up into one individual. What it took a dozen Englishmen two hundred years to do Martin Luther did in twenty.
