Is it not the Bible that gives all her authority to the Church? That year saw Wycliffe at the height of his popularity and influence. Friends and relations were put on oath, and bound to say what they knew of their own kindred. Wycliffe also directed a translation of the Bible into English. As this barbarous execution proceeded, the hateful priests and monks reviled and cursed the poor man and did their best to prevent the people from praying for him.

    From these humble beginnings, he soon ends up embroiled in a world of shady art robberies, crooked dealers, a suspicious suicide and the hunt for a missing yacht. This version is translated by John Purveywho diligently worked on the translation of Wycliffe's Bible, as can be seen in the General Prologuewhere Purvey explains the methodology of translating holy scriptures. Lane later D. Why do you speak against the Holy Ghost?

    In keeping with Wycliffe's belief that scripture was the only authoritative reliable guide to the truth about God, he became involved in efforts to translate the Bible into English. It was actually John Ballanother priest, who was involved in the revolt and merely quoted Wycliffe in one of his speeches. The preaching of the Word of God prepared the way for the Reformation in England and elsewhere. His writings were forbidden and the king gave authority to imprison all of those who believed the condemned doctrines. So, the book was of interest to me in some ways, but I doubt most folks will be reading it.

Peter and St. What sight could be more unscriptural, more pagan, more wicked, than these England in the age of Wycliffe book leaders digging up old bones in a grave yard so they can publicly desecrate the long-dead Bible translator and preacher of the Gospel of Grace?

Purvey knew that the fear of God and great care were necessary for an accurate translation. He entered the politics of the day with his great work De civili dominio "On Civil Dominion". For this reason the Wycliffites in England were often designated by their opponents as "Bible men".
