Last year, I read The Hawk That Dare Not Hunt By Day by Scott O’Dell for our family read aloud.
Oh Mr. Tyndale… he sacrificed so much of his life to translate the Bible and print it in English so people could have their own Bibles to read. His health was so meager toward the end of his life. His life… did he think much of it when fulfilling such a purpose for others?
To have our own Bibles! This is precious!
And it makes me wonder… do people value this freedom enough?
People may open it and read a passage…
… people may do a study and have a deep discussion….
… and then *go on with life* not knowing about or thinking of the cost…
This book is full of action and suspense and it is very eye opening to the dangers the Protestant Reformers faced- even those *behind the scenes* like the printers and smugglers. His faith is inspiring and warms our hearts. We were all in tears as we read about how his life on this earth ended.
Our family values taking time to honor the memory of our brothers and sisters in Christ who sacrificed so much… for others. For me. For you. For your children… so that we can have a copy of our own Bibles.
October 31st is Reformation Day
