Publisher's Description

The grandfather of Christian fiction returns with the story of what happened to the winslow family during an earlier era when the Tudors reigned—tracing the doomed rise of Stuart Winslow within the salacious court of King Henry VIII.

The determined Stuart Winslow will go to any lengths to lift himself and his widowed mother out of poverty. After a distant relative manages to secure a place for Stuart in the court of King Henry VIII, Stuart quickly learns that the court is really a wicked cauldron of vices, power plays, and temptation. As Stuart rises at court, he is asked to find and deliver for execution an enemy of the king—William Tyndale, an acquaintance of Stuart’s whose sole ambition is to translate the Bible into the language of the common man. Does Stuart fall prey to his dangerous ambition and accept the assignment? Or is he willing to face death at the stake for the sake of Christ?

In Honor in the Dust, bestselling author Gilbert Morris captures the tone of the Tudor period beautifully, chronicling the period’s excesses with skill and prudence. But like Morris’s other novels, it also contrasts those excesses with the godly behavior of real-life characters like William Tyndale. In this captivating historical drama, Stuart Winslow is caught between two worlds: one that promises material and worldly success, and one that promises salvation. Is his faith strong enough to withstand such a challenge?

    I am only half-way through this book, now, but it is very straightforward in it's message. I love everything I have ever read that was written by Gilbert Morris, and I've read them all, I think. The "House of Winslow" series was the best I have ever read.

    Honor in the dust is a blast to Gilbert's past. He has returned to his careful writing and researching. It is up their with the early Winslow series. Keep it up. By the way when does # 2 come out?

    I've never read a book by Gilbert Morris before, though my husband has and he seemed to enjoy the stories. Now I can see why. This novel truly impressed me. For people who love reading about King Henry VIII and his many problems having a son, his issues with the church, and his numerous affairs, this will definitely fit that taste. However, the book is more about God using William Tyndale to translate the Bible into English so the common people could read God's word. It follows the infamous Winslow clan that Gilbert is known for creating for his many House of Winslow books. I love stories that delve so much into the culture that you feel like you are there. Morris does this well with just enough detail to make the setting come alive, but without grossing you out at the same time. He also lets his characters mess things up and suffer the consequences. He doesn't gloss over their sin and the shame that comes with it. Morris also does a fantastic job of putting his characters into seemingly impossible situations and having God and/or His people come through for them, but not every single time. Life isn't like that and Morris doesn't portray it that way. However, when good triumphs over evil and when God changes the hearts of several characters, as a reader I couldn't help cheering for them. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

    Solid Morris style work. I had a wonderful time reading this story and am anxious to see the second and third installments.

    Gilbert has again found a wonderful way of weaving a real story, which contains a solid Christian message, is highly entertaining, mentally keeps you sharp, and makes you anxious for the next work. Too bad he can't do a book a month. He is one of a handlful of Christian authors who is writing with real intergrity. I never give a 5 star, but was tempted in this story to break my own rule.
