    For 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.

    I 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!

    This is a great Biblical History DVD. Very clear in telling where the Bible came from.

    This is a good one if you want a short but informative study on the origins of our English bible. For the average person or for small group studies it is great.
