Editorial Reviews

Since its original publication in 1611, the King James Bible has had immeasurable influence on religion, language, culture, art, and literature yet its road to influence and acceptance was paved with darkness. International politics, subversion, lust, and bloodshed set the stage for the heroic heretics; who sought to translate the word of God into the English vernacular. Fires of Faith crisscrosses a tumultuous Europe at the birth of religious freedom and chronicles characters central to the Reformation, including John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, King Henry VIII, and Bloody Queen Mary I, culminating with the reign of King James I and his commissioned translation of the Bible. This intriguing three-part documentary series features more than 130 reenactments filmed in eight countries, with great care taken to represent the scenes visually and historically accurate. Commentary from 18 international scholars and religious leaders tells the story of one of the greatest committee efforts in history, resulting in the most influential and enduring book the Western world has ever seen. Part 1 - Yearning for the Word Discover the history of the English Reformation and learn about the varying roles Martin Luther, William Tyndale, and King Henry VIII had in its development. Part 2 - Martyrs for a Book Gutenberg's revolutionary printing press aided the Protestant Reformation and sped up the printing of illegal Bibles being smuggled into England. Within a year, many influential heretics were betrayed, imprisoned, and martyred for their beliefs. Part 3 - The King James Bible In 1604, England's King James ordered a new translation of the Bible. After seven years, 54 scholars, and one of the greatest committee efforts in history, those who persevered brought forth the most widely used book ever written.

This is a very educational and interesting DVD. We watched it for about an hour each night and even our eight year old son found it interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 hours of great learning about the King James Version February 19, 2013
I enjoyed this series. I consider myself a well-versed Christian and I learned so much about this translation of the book I read daily. I highly recommend this if you want to learn more about the favorite English translation.

Fires of Faith is really well done and shed a lot of light on how hard it was to get the Bible translated into English and the challenges early protestants faced in reforming the church. highly recommend it!

It was well researched and presented in an objective way that still made me feel emotionally attached. What great commitment these people had who gave their lives that we can have this precious book: The Holy Bible.
