Publisher's Description

To Gain at Harvest celebrates the courage, intellect, humility and passion displayed by figures of all shades of opinion and belief during the English Reformation.

Offering insights into the turbulent period of the English Reformation and its ideas, Jonathan Dean demonstrates the qualities of mind and heart, and the gifts of faith and character, which some of its leading proponents possessed.

Including chapters on Thomas Cranmer, Nicholas Harpsfield, Elizabeth I, Matthew Parker, and Katherine Parr, the book moves beyond old confessional lines to reveal the gifts and virtues possessed by women and men whose lives still inspire and whose writings remain one of the greatest treasures of English religious life.

7. Governing with Subtlety: Queen Elizabeth I

Editorial Reviews

Jonathan Dean's eloquent and enlightening portraits of ten 'icons of faithfulness' from the Reformation - clerical and lay, male and female, Protestant and Catholic - are intended to facilitate a dialogue between modern Christians and their forebears from a fractured and traumatized age. This is ecumenism of a robust and courageous kind, not looking to erase or minimize past differences, but holding out the hope that sincere efforts to understand Christian integrity in an era of conflict can help illuminate our own difficult path to unity.
