His Christian life, spanning the first forty years of the Reformation in England, has rarely been told. The Reformation should never be forgotten. By that mighty work of God, England was delivered from darkness, the Bible was translated and opened, people eagerly read it and the gospel had great success…. Be careful of this ancient landmark. Once England formally repudiates that, her sun will set. (J K Popham writing in 1929).'
