Steven J. Lawson


Ligonier Ministries

Publication date:





201 pages


Many know of John Wycliffe in relation to his Bible translation. Lawson describes him to readers as not only a translator but also as a Bible champion, defender, theologian, scholar and preacher. Despite the time he lived in when the Bible itself was not accessible to the people, not even written in the language of the people, John Wycliffe was devoted to the word of God and putting it into the hands of everyone. Quoting Wycliffe, “ Spiritual profit is infinitely better than temporal, and spiritual profit cannot be acquired apart from the teaching of Holy Scripture.” His life and beliefs should inspire modern day Christians.
