The remarkable story of and struggle for the Bible becoming available to all.
From the introduction:
"The story of the Bible's writing, preservation, and translation is a fascinating one filled with intrigue, discovery, and adventure. In the end, though, William Tyndale's dream--and that of Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin; and of Martin Luther, who translated the Bible into German; and of Cameron Townsend, who founded Wycliffe Bible Translators--of the Bible's being available to everyone was a dream that changed the world. It was a dream that had a transforming effect on England and the English language. And it has had an effect on societies around the globe."
