A Novel in Wycliffe's England
Paperback. 272 Pages
As a secretary at the battle of Crècy, Hugh West'all has come close to death. But when he meets John Wycliffe, he embraces a mission even more exciting and just as dangerous: translating the Bible into English, the language of the common people. Hugh's work helps him to understand the Gospel even as a corrupt and decadent church plots to choke Wycliffe's translation and silence him forever.
Douglas Bond uses his unique writing style to produce a highly readable imagining of the travails of John Wycliffe, the 14th century ‘heretic’ who dared to make the eternal truths of the Bible accessible to the marginalized people group of his day: English peasants. This vivid and exciting narrative reminds us of the very real challenges to Bible translation over the centuries and of the importance in carrying out the work he started.
