John Wycliffe is a famous Oxford professor who translated the Bible into English. Wycliffe believes that everyone should be able to read the Bible. Arnold Hutton hears Wycliffe's teachings and is inspired by his ideas. Arnold learns that Wycliffe's enemies are sending spies to his lectures and encouraging Oxford students to riot.
Making an adolescent boy the main character, Ms. Vernon creates a story that fascinates the minds of both youngsters and adults. I look forward to seeing my students excitement as they read this book.
