Thomas Cranmer: Evangelising the Nation (i)
Posted by Ros Clarke, 20 Jun 2017
"Knowing God and Making Him Known" was the theme of the 2017 Church Society Conference. Revd Dr Peter Adam addressed this with two talks on the subject of Thomas Cranmer's evangelistic strategies.
At the 2017 Church Society Conference, Revd Dr Peter Adam outlined Thomas Cranmer’s strategy for evangelising the nation, which could be summed up in one word: Bible.
In this first talk, Peter described the various ways in which England had been evangelised prior to the Reformation, and then detailed Cranmer’s strategy. Through the lectionary, ordinary people could hear large sections of Scripture read aloud, in their own language, day by day. By getting the Bible into the ears - and thus the minds and hearts - of people, Cranmer sought to win them for Christ.
