God's Outlaw: The Story Of William Tyndale-DVD
A true story, God's Outlaw is
about international politics, church intrigue, cold-blooded betrayal, and
false justice ending in Martyrdom. But it's also about victorious faith
and spiritual triumph over some of the greatest political and religious
forces known in the 16th century.
A simple God-seeking man, William Tyndale somehow became one of the most
wanted men in England and all of Europe. Pursued by King Henry VIII, Lord
Chancellor Sir Thomas More, and the Pope's personal legate Cardinal Wolsey,
he darted across Europe to avoid capture -- always pushing to complete the
task that obsessed him.
The task was translating the Bible into English and publishing it for his
fellow countrymen -- Englishmen who lived in a country where the Bible and
even prayers in English were outlawed by a harsh and rigid religious
establishment. Today he is renowned as "the father of the English Bible,"
and is recognized as one of the major leaders of the English Reformation.
But the tale of how he lived and died as "God's Outlaw" is a compelling
"rest-of-the-story," and is especially a moving encouragement for modern
people of faith.
