Item description for John Wycliffe: Man of Courage (By Faith Biography Series) by Ambassador...
John Wycliffe, the Morning Star of the Reformation, gave us the first English translation of the Bible. A noted scholar and teacher at Oxford, his reliance on the Bible as the sole source of truth stood in stark contrast to the teachings of the Catholic church. His followers went out, teaching and preaching to the common man throughout England.
Bowing himself to the authority of the Bible, his great aim was to bring men to the Word. He saw it as the one great authority, the Law that exceeded all other laws. His lifes work continued through men like John Hus and laid the groundwork for Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox and the other great men of the Reformation.

Super Summary May 23, 2007
I wanted to read a bird's eye account of Wycliffe's life. The book is only 110 pages long, is written very well, and highlights the major incidences in Wycliffe's life with quotes from his interrogators, which puts the reader in the moment. I recommend this book.
