Overview

John Bradford, an academic, priest, and martyr of the Reformation, was one of the most influential Reformers of the sixteenth century, and his works are collected in this 2-volume set. He is most remembered for his statement, “There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford,” after watching a criminal being led to execution. This collection includes his letters, biography, exhortations, meditations, sermons, essays, translations, writings from prison, and eulogies. Known for his spiritual devotion, Bradford was imprisoned under the reign of Mary I in 1553 until his execution in 1555. In true Reformer fashion, Bradford encourages his readers to live devout lives and pursue holiness.

The Writings of John Bradford (2 Vols.) is essential for any study of Reformed theology and history, and will encourage readers to greater faith. It is perfect for students, pastors, and anyone interested in the life and teachings of this Reformation martyr. With the Logos edition, all Scripture references are linked to the other Reformed resources you own.

About John Bradford

John Bradford was born in 1510 in England. He had a varied career, as an accountant, a law student, and a priest. Bradford sided with the Church of England and after Mary I took the throne in 1553, was imprisoned under false charges. After watching prisoners being led to their execution, he said, “There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford,” his most well-known statement. He was martyred in 1555.
