An intimate look at an often-forgotten Protestant Reformer. A biographical introduction plus annotations on her books and select letters, this volume presents a woman who risked her life for the Reformation in England.
“This well-researched study of authoress Parr, Henry VIII’s surviving Queen, contains full reprints of her Prayers or Meditations, drawn from various sources, and her precious autobiographical account of authentic Reformed piety, A Lamentation or Complaint of a Sinner. These are worth more than the price of the book!”
— J.I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regents College, Vancouver, B.C., Canada
"This is a very helpful book on a most courageous woman – one of the most important women of the entire Reformation. Parr's story ought to be better known by evangelical Christians, who often forget the roles that women have played in shaping their faith and practice."
— Douglas Sweeney, Assoc. Professor of Church History and the History of Christian Thought, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Wheaton, Illinois
