In researching for a book on women soul care-giving, it is often difficult, unfortunately, to find examples of Protestant women in the early years of the Reformation, who left writings to examine. Bainton's three book series on women of the reformation has been a gold mind of primary source and historical background. Well worth the purchase price for the serious student of Reformation history from a feminine perspective.
