Abstract:

This stand-alone novel in the four-part Book of Books series presents the people and the events that brought the Bible into the English language. These historical novels are told in high drama, but with great respect for God's Word and for the courageous people who translated it. Meg Foxe has stumbled upon a book so powerful that it changes her life. Its words comfort and soothe her troubled mind like nothing else. But there's a problem. The book is banned throughout England. And Pernell, her husband, the man she loves more than anything else in the world, has devoted himself to its total annihilation. Meg can't bring herself to give up the book, but how long she can keep her secret hidden from Pernell? Swept up in the turbulent world of sixteenth-century England and King Henry VIII, where William Tyndale's English New Testament translation has been outlawed as heresy, Meg is about to align herself with those who risk their lives to read and distribute God's Word. A thrilling espionage game of cat and mouse, a shocking discovery that threatens to shatter both a career and a marriage, a front row seat in the court of Henry VIII, where politics and religion mean life and death.
