Publisher's Description

Devout Anne Boleyn uses her influence over Henry VIII to champion an English translation of the Bible. Meanwhile Rose, a woman of the streets, is moved to seek God by Thomas More---ignorant of his efforts to destroy those same Scriptures. A remarkable story of two women, their guardian angels, and the book that launched the Reformation!

ChristianBookPreviews

In Ginger Garrett’s historical novel In the Shadow of Lions, a tale is spun about two women, one driven to seek God and the other to champion the translation of a book that could change the world and set the Reformation on fire. This story weaves fantasy, history, and romance into elements of intrigue and adventure.

The novel offers stories of three different characters: Anne Boleyn, Rose, and the Scribe. Rose and Anne discover through their own dilemmas and personalities the importance of a personal God.

The time period is the beginning of the Reformation, the setting is England, and with the help of the Scribe, the curtains are drawn and the narrative begins. Rose is a broken young woman who is saved after trying to commit suicide. She is pulled toward God by her admiration of Thomas More, the man who rescued her. Thomas, however, seeks to destroy the one book that would change the perspective of Christianity forever. Anne Boleyn only wants to live a life that is pure in God’s eyes, but she inadvertently catches the wandering eye of the king. She uses her influence over the king to become an important supporter of a book that could cause a rippling effect over the world: an English translation of the Bible. Anne and her helpers have to choose between what the world deems as right and what they think is right in God’s eyes. They want people to be able to read the Bible, not hear about it secondhand. As it says in the Book of Job, “I admit, Lord, I once lived by rumors of you; now I have it all firsthand...I’ll never again live on crusts of hearsay, crumbs of rumor” (The Message).

Rose begins as a hardened women, broken by her past. She slowly heals and with that healing comes a desire to learn more about God. When Anne first steps across the pages of the book, she is innocent, but as she gains power she begins to tarnish, as if becoming corrupted by power. The two women portray different sides of the Reformation.

This book offers an insightful and compelling story that leaves the reader with a greater understanding of the impact the Reformation period had on history. Also, it brings with it a reminder: history often tells just the facts, leaving the reasons behind people's actions forgotten. In the Shadow of Lions will enthrall women from the mid-teen years on up. Personally, I recommend this book, as it is a delightfully different take on the life of Anne Boleyn. -- Marissa Willems, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Discussion Questions

1.Read the verse in Leviticus 20:21. Catherine married Henry’s older brother, but the brother died soon after the wedding. Catherine said the marriage was never consummated; therefore, she was free to marry Henry. Was Henry right or wrong in seeking a divorce from Catherine based on this verse of Leviticus?

2.Every character did what they believed was right and what they believed honored God. When you think of your favorite character, what actions stand out to you? Were they right or wrong?

3.Are there any true villains in this story? Sir More burned Christians alive, but believed he was saving the world from heresy. Henry cast Catherine aside and beheaded Anne, but he was trying to give England an heir to the throne and prevent a civil war. Good people can do bad things in the name of God. How are we to judge between good and evil?

4.Why did everyone have such radically different ideas about serving God? How do you see this dilemma played out in the evening news? What about in your very own family, or church?

5.What were you taught in school about the Reformation? Did you have a low opinion of Anne Boleyn and a high opinion of Thomas More? Who controls history and how does this affect our judgment?

6.Can you know God if you’ve never read the entire Bible? People died gruesome deaths for the right to read the Bible. Were their deaths in vain?

7.Read Revelations 20:12. How do you feel about these books being opened on the Day of Judgment?

8.Not everyone is pleased to think there may be supernatural creatures walking with us. How does it make you feel?

9.Angels are eternal beings. They have seen the women of your family line for thousands of years. If the Scribe appeared to you tonight, and gave you one chance to see a woman from your past, what woman—or what time period—would you most like to see?

10.The Bible says angels are sent to minister to believers. Have you ever had an “angelic encounter”? Are you comfortable sharing it?
