'This is a scholarly and stylish treatment of its subject ... Ryrie addresses complex issues of theology and identity with a lightness of touch.' Church Times
'... there is no doubt that he has presented a fresh perspective on a surprisingly little-known period in reformation history which will have to be taken into account by everyone working in the field or teaching the subject at undergraduate level.' Churchman
'The contemporary significance of this fine work deserves to be noted.' Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology
'... Ryrie has filled an important gap in recent English Reformation historiography. ... he marshals his evidence with tremendous skill and offers resourceful and quite sensible arguments.' Sixteenth Century Journal
'Alec Ryrie has produced a fascinating work which will undoubtedly soon become required reading for anyone interested in the early history of the English Reformation. The Gospel and Henry VIII is an excellent work that sheds new light on a vital but neglected area of Tudor religious history.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History
"Well-researched and exceptionally well-written." Comitatus
"Religion in the reign of Henry VIII is a much studied, indeed some might argue over-studied, field. It remains the case, however, that every now and then a book comes along which offers substantial and fresh perspectives, and brings to light new material as well as collating known material in a novel and useful way. Alec Ryrie's book, which is an extension of his doctoral thesis, is such a volume." - Craig D'Alton, Melbourne College of Divinity and University of Melbourne., H-NET
