The Story of the English Bible is one of the great adventures of the last millennium. It’s hard to fathom that a book, which is an all time best-seller, was barely known five hundred years ago.
There were valid reasons for this. The medieval church, which controlled every avenue of individual life, didn’t want it. The printing press, which had yet to be invented, precluded it.
Then came the Renaissance and the thirst for knowledge. Scholars found new light in ancient manuscripts. One of these scholars, Erasmus, compiled a Greek New Testament. Other scholars read it and were converted.
This presentation highlights the contributions of Wycliffe, Huss, Erasmus, Gutenberg, and Tyndale.
