Katherine Parr: A Guided Tour of the Life and Thought of a Reformation Queen is 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.
Brandon G. Withrow (MA, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) is Instructor in Historical and Theological Studies at Winebrenner Theological Seminary. He taught at Beeson Divinity School, Samford University. He is the editor of A Treatise on Regeneration by Peter van Mastricht and coauthor of the five-volume History Lives series.
This well-researched study of authoress Parr, Henry VIIIs 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!
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.
