The Revolt

The Revolt

(A book in the Wycliffe's England series)
A novel by

Icy fingers closed around my heart at his words. Wycliffe had said it where all could hear him. In public, he had blasphemed. He had declared the "Vicar of Christ" to be the antichrist. There could be but one result from such a declaration.

In his short career as a battle secretary, Hugh West'all has come close to death many times. But when he leaves the war behind to enter the hallowed halls of Oxford, he meets John of Wycliffe and soon embarks on a mission even more exciting - and perhaps just as dangerous.

Using his scribe's quill to translate the Bible into English, the language of the common people, Hugh begins to understand the beauty of the gospel as never before. But he and his friends are up against the corrupt monolith of the medieval church, and it will stop at nothing to crush Wycliffe's work.

"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
