Though little remembered and seldom read, the Books of Homilies remain an important source of doctrine and history in the Anglican tradition. From the first of these comes this homily, A Fruitful Exhortation to the Reading and Knowledge of Holy Scripture. Often ascribed to Thomas Cranmer, this homily is one of the most extensive expositions of the doctrine of the Scriptures found in any official Anglican documents from the Reformation era. Read, and find a glimpse of how the early English Reformers understood the importance of Scripture in the life of the Christian and in the Church.
