Overview

Imagine for a moment a land where the possession of an English Bible was forbidden. Anyone caught carrying such propaganda was imprisoned and then burned. This land was not in a state of communism, but rather its people believed in God and sought out heretics in God’s name. Where and when did this land exist? It was England during the sixteenth century. Only the common people spoke the native English language. Generation after generation of these commoners sat inside the church house unable to understand the Latin-speaking priest. From this spiritual darkness arose a few men who risked their lives believing it was necessary for the people to read the English Bible in their native tongue. This book traces the history of these men and their works.
