Parr, Elnathan D.D., an eminent English divine, flourished in the reign of king James I. Parr was educated at King's College, Cambridge; after taking holy orders he became rector of Palgrave, Suffolk. His exposition of the Epistle to the Romans is a useful "work, "equally remarkable," says Dr. Williams, "for soundness of sentiment, familiarity of illustration, and want of taste in style and composition." His Works were repeatedly published (4th edit., corrected and enlarged. Lond. 1651, fol.). They contain, Exposition on the Epistlet to the Romans (on ch. i, on the first two verses of ch. ii, and on ch. viii-xvi): — The Grounds of Divinity expounded and applied (8th edit. Lond. 1636, 12mo): Abba, Father, or a plain and short Direction concerning the Framing of Private Prayer.
