Long out of print, John Jewel's classic defense of Reformation principles is again available in this specially re-issued edition with an introductory essay by John E. Booty. Written after Elizabeth's accession to the throne upon the death of Mary Tudor, Jewel's Apology was a major literary contribution toward England's struggle with the papacy and influenced the development of Anglicanism. John Booty's brilliant introduction places Jewel's work in its historical context and highlights its documentary importance in the English Reformation.

John Booty taught Church History at Virginia Seminary and the Episcopal Theological School. He was also professor of Anglican Studies at The University of the South, where he served as Dean of the School of Theology. He currently resides in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire.
