busdriver72Texas4 Stars Out Of 5It's not badApril 21, 2013busdriver72TexasQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3For five bucks it is a good buy. A fairly good history of the English Bible. The DVD began with Wycliffe, even though there were others around that time that also translated parts of the Bible into Engish (Anglo) that should have been mentioned. The DVD did relate Luther(ism) and the reformation into the translating efforts quite well. I was disappointed that it ended so quickly after Tyndale. No mention was made of Coverdale, Rogers, the Great Bible, the Geneva Bible, the Bishops or KJ. But for a brief, quick history, it is okay.
Edith Biggarnortheast of Boston, MAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is a GREAT video, overview of title subjectNovember 9, 2012Edith Biggarnortheast of Boston, MAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have viewed this DVD 4 times now. I purchased it first because of the price, and second because I wanted to learn the story of the English Bible. I know some of the Protestant Reformation and some of the characters of it. Familiarity with Martin Luther is strongest in my mind. Along with this video, I also got a DVD on Martin Luther and one on John Hus. I had heard the name of Hus, but nothing else about him. This production also introduced me to John Wycliffe and his role in making the English Bible. I had not heard of John Wycliffe prior to this and only the name of William Tyndale. When I can afford it, I hope to get a DVD on John Wycliffe. But, for now, I am content to know that he translated the Vulgate (Latin) into English. But, he did this before Guttenburg invented the movable type printing press. And the Roman Church was so "mired in superstition and dogma, even the priests and nuns were ignorant about the Bible." This is a short video (just under an hour) in length, but it doesn't feel rushed at all. This DVD was made from an earlier tape video (just the opening screen will attest to that). This was probably produced in the early 1970's, if I had to guess. I am glad I purchased it when I did; it is worth every penny I paid for it!

For the average person or for small group studies it is great.
Q: Is this about the King James version only... or are they discussing other versions also?
No, this DVD is actually the story of William Tyndale and the first English Bible Translation from the original texts.
