John Wicliffe

The Morning Star of the Reformation

The preface to this edition of this book states that while John Wycliffe is not as well-known as the reformers who followed after him, his faithfulness to the word of God and his courage in opposing the ecclesiastical powers of thirteenth century England had such an effect on those who followed that he is often referred to as “the Morning Star of the Reformation.”

This book is a reproduction of an old edition.
