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.

Robert Strivens, Pastor, Bradford–on–Avon Baptist Church, Wiltshire, UK & former Principal, London Seminary

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

… succeeds in demonstrating that Reformation history is not just for the intellectual, but for the ordinary person as well. … a challenge and inspiration for believers today.

Pat Mollitt, Retired Pastor’s wife

… 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

… a very insightful view of the nitty–gritty of life in Tudor times – particularly in the higher strata of society.

Philip Parsons , Author of ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Church History’

… it is bracing and convicting to read of the way in which each of these women counted it a privilege to stand and suffer for Christ. 

Sharon James, Social Policy Analyst, The Christian Institute

No–one could be in any doubt after reading this book, that these women really knew how to give an answer for the hope that they had in Christ. Elaine demonstrates how they courageously and wisely articulated this hope, and faithfully held fast to it until the end.

Jo Coleman, Chair, Grace Baptist Women’s Association

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.
