About-

God's Ploughman, Hugh Latimer: a 'Preaching Life' (1485-1555) provides a unique study of the life and ministry of one of early modern England's most significant preachers. Rather than offering a biography or analysis of sermons, the author creates a new genre, the 'preaching life'. The result is an integrative study that situates Latimer's life and ministry within the rapidly changing religious, cultural, and political environment of Tudor England. The result is a homiletic interpretation of Latimer's life that provides an in-depth perspective on one of early modern England's most important religious figures who is remembered as one of the 'Oxford Martyrs'

Endorsements & Reviews-

'Revisionist historians have rather justifiably slowed the progress of the English reformation, but in the process they have often overlooked religiously reformed Tudor preachers of considerable consequence. Mike Pasquarello, well versed in homiletics and historical theology, is perfectly positioned to repossess one of the most significant sixteenth-century English preachers and prelates, Hugh Latimer. Letting Latimer speak - from his early sermons to his last acts - can only deepen our understanding of the great age of religious reform and the resistances reformers encountered.'
Peter Iver Kaufman, George Mathews and Virginia Brinkley
Modlin Professor, University of Richmond, USA

'This book introduces readers to one of the best preachers England ever produced and shows how he used lively biblical preaching as his primary instrument of reform.'
David C. Steinmetz, Kearns Professor Emeritus of the History of Christianity, Duke Divinity School, Durham, NC, USA.

'Michael Pasquarello, in this fine work, provides us with a fascinating and penetrating account of Hugh Latimer not merely as a partisan preacher, as have many other works, but as a skilled, homiletic theologian who understood the pivotal role of the sermon as the primary medium of biblical theology. Pasquarello further highlights Latimer's conception of the preached Word as the perquisite vehicle of substantial reform of the church's doctrine and practice. This book assumes its rightful place among other important studies that continue to confirm a fact that is only now being appreciated--that the program of the English Reformers was one that was rooted in a serious, substantial Scriptural theology. Pasquarello's work rightly presents Latimer as this great preacher of the Tudor Church understood himself and his mission. It is an invaluable contribution to the field.'
Andre Gazal, Professor of Historical and Systematic Theology, Northland Graduate School, Dunbar, Wisconsin, USA
