Lady Jane Grey has often been called the "Tudor Pawn" but to see her as one whose life was simply moved around by others is inadequate. To understand the full tragedy and triumph of her life one must grasp the far-reaching political and religious changes of the time. Here is a biography which seeks to present Lady Jane in this context, and to give honor where it is due. 253 pages, softcover from Evangelical Press.

Lady Jane Grey
Date:February 11, 2011
I greatly appreciated this 'biography' of Lady Jane Grey! I had first heard of this faithful woman through a sermon, in which the pastor specifically recommended Faith Cook's book. I'm so glad I bought it! The book was very well-balanced, giving a realistic view of Lady Jane's spiritual steadfastness as well as her struggles. It also gave a good overview of the historical context (which I found helpful and interesting) and gave great insight into the person and passions of Lady Jane herself. Throughout the book I had a constant theme running through my head, as I considered the the way Lady Jane stood firm in her savior: "All to Jesus, I surrender, all to Him I freely give..." She truly did count the cost for her Lord. I would encourage you to read this and be refreshed and challenged by the testimony of a young servant of Christ!
