John Wycliffe is rightly remembered as the “Morning Star of the Reformation.” He was grounded in Scripture-saturated convictions that drove his vigorous defense of the gospel and his groundbreaking work as the first to translate the Bible into English.
In The Bible Convictions of John Wycliffe, the latest addition to the Long Line of Godly Men Profiles series, Dr. Steven Lawson tells how Wycliffe’s devotion to the gospel made him the forerunner of the Reformation who translated the Bible into English for the first time. We’re indebted to him for our English Bibles today, and his story can encourage us to establish our convictions on God’s Word. Order your copy of this new book today.
