Description

The women in this book – Lady Jane Grey, Anne Askew, Katherine Parr and Catherine Willoughby were Christian women of outstanding courage and conviction. Each was transformed by the teachings of the Reformation and experienced its dramas and dangers.

Elaine Snuggs has researched widely and deeply to portray for us four remarkable women living through a fascinating period in history, a period with immense consequences for England and indeed the world. The women are both well known (Katharine Parr, sixth and surviving wife of Henry VIII, and Lady Jane Grey, the Nine Days Queen) and not so well known (martyr Anne Askew and Catherine Willoughby, Duchess of Suffolk).

These were not flawless heroines but in their times of trial showed themselves to be brave, intelligent, educated women, of strong character and radiant spirit, living for the Lord who had saved them and whom they had come to know as the only Saviour and Redeemer by grace alone through faith alone.

See how God has exercised his sovereignty in history – in the public sphere as well as in the lives of individuals, and be inspired to love Christ more, and live for him.

Endorsements

Women are too often left out of our history, especially Christian history. This book helps to redress the balance by telling the story of four women from Tudor England who played significant roles in the stirring times in which they lived and maintained a clear evangelical testimony amidst the difficulties that they faced. This very readable and moving account will inform, inspire, edify and challenge men and women.

What a lively presentation of some of the women involved in the English Reformation! Elaine Snuggs has written a most energetic and revealing account of some of its key figures, albeit not quite on the front line. Not only does she write the story well, but she captures something of the spirit of the times.
