For peasant intellectual Thomas Torr, translating the Latin Vulgate into English with the illustrious John Wycliffe is a way to bring God’s word to all people. But the Roman Church has pronounced a death sentence on anyone possessing an English Bible, and Thomas soon faces a baptism of fire that threatens his very existence. From a simple British village to the elaborate Roman catacombs, Thomas confronts incredible adventure and shattering betrayal as he struggles to heed God’s call for him. A vivid depiction of church history, Glimpses of Truth is filled with strong characters and thrilling intrigue. Virginia Leishman’s splendid narration captures the heartfelt convictions of people striving to illuminate God’s glory.
