Overview

An extraordinary intellect, the love of a beautiful woman, and a remarkable mission — life holds great promise for Thomas Torr. Chosen by the illustrious John Wycliffe to assist in translating the Latin Vulgate into English, the young peasant senses God calling him to an incredible destiny.

And danger. By order of the Roman Church, possession of an English Bible is punishable by death. Yet now, the Vatican itself seems willing to grant Thomas an audience.

His hopes high for defending Wycliffe’s translation, Thomas journeys from his home in rural England to the grandeur of Rome — and thus begins an incredible adventure, leading from the catacombs of Rome to the hinterlands of Britain. So, too, commences a baptism by fire that threatens to consume all he holds dear — his life, his reputation, and his future with the woman he loves.

More than just a novel, Glimpses of Truth is a vivid and accurate description of church history. Here are characters to fall in love with, exotic settings, drama, and intrigue . . . and an ending that will stir anew your desire to fulfill God’s call on your life.

A Forward and Afterword by William E. Nix provides the historical setting for this compelling story of passion, power, and heroism in the battle to read the Bible in one’s own language.
