Re: About Queen Jane Grey calvinist
- Hi Cathy,
Seems to me that Hollywood (ugh!) made an actually almost-credible
version of her short-lived history. The movie was quite popular
amongst the "young theologians" in my old PCA church years
ago...called "Lady Jane". Except for the usual Hollywood touches, it
was an interesting look at this woman's stand for Reformation truth
during her day, leading to her martyrdom.
