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 have played significant roles in the advance of the Gospel, and this is especially true during the era of the Reformation. I am therefore thrilled with this new book … there is much that women – and men – can learn from them in our equally challenging day.

Michael A. G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

… a rich feast of historically fascinating and spiritual enriching biography. … will surely prompt the question in any sincere Christian mind: ‘What does Jesus mean to me?’

Mostyn Roberts, Pastor, Welwyn Evangelical Church, and author of biographies of Francis Schaeffer and Roger Williams
