On the battlefield at Kappel, a Swiss hero died. He was not a warrior but a minister. His heroism was not displayed in military valor but in preaching the gospel. He demonstrated his courage not so much in facing pikes, spears, and swords as in declaring the whole counsel of God, even when kings and priests opposed him. This hero was Ulrich Zwingli. In sixteenth century Switzerland, Zwingli sought to reform the church according to the pure precepts of the Word of God. Yet in those violent times, even a spiritual reformation could encounter very earthly opposition. Plots and counterplots, rioting mobs, and the threat of executioner's sword confronted the reformer of Zurich and his supporters. The Reformation did not advance without the shedding of blood. Through it all, Zwingli sought to be a faithful shepherd to his flock, knowing that his loyalty must ultimately lie not with kings or princes but with "that great shepherd of the sheep," the Lord Jesus Christ.

Almost 600 years ago, a humble peasant stood alone against pope, emperor and king. He could either defy the truth he believed with all his heart, or he could die at the stake. Today Jan Hus is little known outside of his native Czech Republic, but in his day he challenged a corrupt church and inspired thousands to live for truth. In an age when Europe was divided between three popes, when pestilence claimed one in three lives and church offices were available to the highest bidder, Hus defied the earthly authorities to seek truth directly from the Word of God.

Truth Prevails, a quote from Hus himself, is an hour-long documentary from The Christian History Institute and award-winning filmmakers Jerry and Misha Griffith. Using location footage, interviews with prominent historians and period artwork, this film follow the struggles of Jan Hus and the efforts of modern scholars which ultimately led Pope John Paul II to apologize for the Church's actions.

Truth Prevails is more than just a look at an amazing life in a turbulent time. It is also a thought-provoking examination of many difficult issues facing anyone living in any time: When should we stand our ground and when should we back down? Which issues are worth dying for? How should we speak out against what we know is wrong? And ultimately, when should we ask for and offer forgiveness?

One of the greatest of Reformers in the annals of history was John Hus (the "goose" of Bohemia, as he was derisively called). His pious life and witness during his trial and martyrdom convinced many of the priests and church leaders of his innocence and the justice of his cause. Poggius was the papal legate who delivered the summons to John Hus to appear at the council of Constance, then participated in the council as a voting member. Hus was given a safe conduct by the emperor Sigismund which he cowardly broke in deference to the pressure from Hus' inveterate enemies. This 72 page book consists of two letters from Poggius to his friend Nikolai, and describes in living detail the trial and burning of Hus. So potent was John Hus' humble testimony contrasted with the amazing rudeness and injustice of the priests and cardinals, that even some of his ardent foes became his defenders. Even Poggius himself is profoundly affected.

The history books make little mention of this Bohemian priest and scholar who lived 100 years before Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation. Yet John Hus was convinced and taught openly that the Bible should be presented in the language of the people, that salvation comes by faith in Jesus Christ, and the Word of God is the final authority. He was summoned to the Council of Constance and promised safety, but he was betrayed. In the end, Hus was accused, imprisoned, and charged with heresy. Ultimately, he was condemned and burned at the stake as a heretic. Approx. 55 minutes.

John Knox, more than any other man, laid the foundations of democracy, revitalised Church and Government, and brought the benefits of education to the ordinary people of Scotland. Knox's influence had spread far outside of Scotland during his life, but even more so after his death. He was at the forefront of the movement that led to one of the most momentous transformations that Scotland has ever experienced. His life story is filled with drama, as his fortunes ebbed and flowed, courage, as he made his stand, and intrigue, as his opponents plotted against him. This is a truly fascinating story that shows how God works through his people to transform the most hopeless of situations.

Would you like to make a difference? These ten boys grew up to do just that--but first they had to change the church. How did God change them? Augustine discovered the love of God and changed the way we think; John Knox focused on God's word and told his country the truth; Martin Luther rediscovered God's truth and gave it to ordinary people; John Calvin realized that salvation was a gift from God and not a reward for what he did; William Tyndale longed to print the Bible in a language that everyone would understand; Hugh Latimer urged people to read the Bible for themselves and made enemies as a result; Jan Hus taught that God is in charge of the church and the world; Ulrich Zwingli challenged people to obey God's word in every area of their lives; Thomas Chalmers called the church to show Christ's compassions to the poor; and Lord Shaftesbury pushed the church into making Christ's love a living reality for everyone. These true-to-life stories of "ordinary" boys and men tell how their lives made an impact because of their faithfulness to God. Each story is about ten pages, making this ideal for family read-alouds; short quiz questions are included at the end of the book. Read this book to find out what God wants you to do!
