    I didn't think that anyone during the 14th Century will ever try to argue the rule of Pope and Church. That was until I learnt about John Wycliffe. A man who debated the Pope's judgement and the ways through which Cristianity is followed. The book was written in a short, simple, and concise manner. An easy-to-understand, short but informative - only Hourly History can complete a book like that.

    John Wycliffe did not believe anything that was not in the Bible.  He came long before there was a Reformation.  However, since his word was based on the Bible, he was fearless.  At that time, only the clerics and nobility could read.  Wycliffe believed that the common man should read so he could read (and understand) the Bible for himself. John was born in 1320, in Yorkshire, England.  I liked that the author established John's going off to Oxford at 16 was quite an accomplishment; also confirmi John Wycliffe did not believe anything that was not in the Bible.  He came long before there was a Reformation.  However, since his word was based on the Bible, he was fearless.  At that time, only the clerics and nobility could read.  Wycliffe believed that the common man should read so he could read (and understand) the Bible for himself. John was born in 1320, in Yorkshire, England.  I liked that the author established John's going off to Oxford at 16 was quite an accomplishment; also confirming that it would be a 10-day trip.  The author also explained a bit about life amongst the common folk at the time.  This helps the reader understand the challenges a person faced in England during that age.  Throughout this book, the author explained the significance of things because he was talking about the Middle Ages.  Otherwise, readers might not have a good frame-of-reference about the importance of points the author made. Ministers of that time seem to have read the Mass book in Latin and generally, the commoners did not know what he was saying. Wycliffe translated the Bible and spoke in English, so the commoners could understand.  The clerics wanted to keep the Bible in Latin so they were the only knowledgable ones.  However, Wycliffe changed that.  He was charged with heresy; one of the several issues was transubstantiation -- the belief that the wine and bread (of the Mass) changed into the body and blood of Christ.  Wycliffe said that was a man-made theory; it did not appear in the Bible. The author of this book did an excellent job of explaining concepts within the text for the understanding of the reader.  This was a great overview for anyone wanting to know more about the great John Wycliffe, without spending a great deal of time in the research.

    A man far ahead of the reformation John Wycliffe was a forerunner to the reformation, exposing the hypocrisy of the Roman Catholic Church centuries before Martin Luther. He exposed the rich living of the Popes and friars via land grabbing and demands from the church for alms that they did not need but used to grow the wealth of the hierarchy. He also taught against the doctrine of transsubstantiation which is not found anywhere in the Bible. He translated much of the Bible into English knowing it A man far ahead of the reformation John Wycliffe was a forerunner to the reformation, exposing the hypocrisy of the Roman Catholic Church centuries before Martin Luther.

He also taught against the doctrine of transsubstantiation which is not found anywhere in the Bible. He translated much of the Bible into English knowing it is God's intention for all men to read and study it. Although short, this history provides a good understanding of this great man of God.

    Concise, clear and encouraging Whilst this is an overview of Wycliff's life and work there is enough detail to allow an appreciation of the spiritual and intellectual forces that enabled him to take a stand against the corruption and self-interest of the church of his day. He stood for a more humble, transparent, Christ-centred, Bible-focused church that was independent of Rome and open to the general population OF England - all before Luther and Henry VIII Concise, clear and encouraging Whilst this is an overview of Wycliff's life and work there is enough detail to allow an appreciation of the spiritual and intellectual forces that enabled him to take a stand against the corruption and self-interest of the church of his day.

Surely other longer books reveal much more of it. The official church did its best to "cancel" Wycliffe by any means possible, finally failing to silence or kill him but after he died his post death cancellation consisted of digging his body up from the grave and burning it.

That may have salved the hatred of some but in the end we all wound up with the Bible available in all languages and the freedom to read, preach and discuss it as well. Wycliffe won after all. The Lord protected him from cancellation!

    I was drawn to John Wycliffe by Foxe's Book of Martyrs. It was odd to me how many people were being persecuted by upholding Wycliffe's beliefs. What was it Wycliffe was promoting? This book gives a taste of the ideas which later started the reformation, but even today have the power to ignite a new reformation. Wycliffe would not be satisfied with the American evangelical church. Neither would Lord Jesus. I was drawn to John Wycliffe by Foxe's Book of Martyrs.

    A brief biography of John Wycliffe John Wycliffe was in many ways a great influence and advance guard of the Reformation in the Christian Church. This gives a quick summary of some of the scholar's life and beliefs. Designed to be read in an hour or less, this book gives a good basis for understanding his views and fights with the Catholic Church. Needs a good proofreader though, especially the first chapter.

    This was a typical Hourly History installment. The information was surface and concise, with a few unknown details. This is of course good for someone with no subject knowledge, or one who wants to refresh their knowledge. Great refresher for me, I learned all that I forgot and a couple of rarer facts. 4 stars.

    Scripture Or Outrageous Selfserving Dictates I see this as the beginning of the faithful exposing the Catholic church for its OWN HERESY!! Wycliffe was a courageous! man who insisted on the common people having the right to read the scriptures and decide for themselves what they believe. Ironically the Catholic church contigo in its arrogant ways!

    Poor history. The Bible was not available in Latin in the first century. Bohemian is not modern Germany. How can one rely on the other facts? Latin This is a poor work. It contains obvious errors. For instance since when was the Bible available during the first Century and then in Latin? And Christianity already in England? Since when is Bohemia modern Germany?

    John Wycliffe a man worthy of remembering! An excellent brief study of the man and the political/culture in which he lived. Anyone interested in the Church and its impact on culture during dark ages will discover the value of biblical truth over man made institutions. You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    Wycliffe It might be good for the writers to realize events of so long ago many details will be missing thus one should not read between the lines for the readers, give the facts it also might be good at times to consult those in the faith so certain mistakes are not made. Nevertheless, a good work about a great man

    A powerful book about a fascinating man. John Wycliffe is an inspiration for anybody standing firm in their convictions against seeming overwhelming forces. He reminds us that remaining calm and respectful is the key to winning arguments and attacks on your reputation.

    Informative I haven't had these kinds of educational subjects presented to me since I was growing up. It reminds me how fortunate young people are and how important life-long learning is, especially foundational history.

    Who knew A fascinating review of a man I must say I had little knowledge of. It is interesting how the religious community wanted him suppressed but they did not debate him.
