Endorsements

“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.” — Bob Creson, President and CEO, Wycliffe Bible Translators

“The gilded histories often fail to note how extraordinary times invade ordinary lives. Douglas Bond paints the days of John Wycliffe in full color, showing that the Morningstar rose over filthy streets and jaded lives—and brought real hope to hearts in bondage.” — Jeremiah W. Montgomery, Author, The Dark Harvest Trilogy

The Revolt is a feast for the senses filled with accounts of battles, deception, heartache, integrity, and devotion.” — Chuck Bentley, CEO, Crown Financial Ministries
