This chapter comprises an introduction to the conversion narrative and prophecies of Katherine Sutton, selected reading, and extracts from her only published work, A Christian Womans Experiences of the Glorious Working of Gods Free Grace (1663). Sutton was a Particular Baptist and Fifth Monarchist, connected to the London Baptist Church of Hanserd Knollys who wrote the preface to the work, who fled to Holland after the Restoration (the work was published in Rotterdam). Sutton's traumatic experiences (including illness following childbirth and surviving a shipwreck) were interpreted by her as God continuing to sanctify her through the Holy Spirit and deaden sin within her.
