William Tyndale: His Life, His Legacy

9 Sep

Throughout the world today, people are learning to be more efficient farmers, to keep more sanitary houses, and to prevent diseases all because someone was committed to bringing them the Bible in their native tongue.  This connection may not be obvious at first.  After all, what does the Sacred Writ really have to do with better medical techniques or the production of crops?  The answer may be simpler than you imagine.

Each of the 7,000 languages spoken in the world today began as an oral form of communication.  While this allows people to communicate their immediate needs, it is rarely an efficient form of accurately conveying information in the long term.  Like a game of “telephone”, verbal instructions can be warped and mutilated until what began as history and good advice becomes legend and folklore.  The ability to write changes this… and frequently this transformation begins with the work of men and women dedicated to sharing the words of the Bible.  It’s a story shared by literally thousands of languages, including (not too long ago) our own.

That’s why, this week, we’re featuring the 60 minute DVD “William Tyndale: His Life, His Legacy”.  Brief and informative, this winner of the 2004 WORLDFEST International Film Festival GOLD Special Jury Award will introduce you to the man whose efforts to make the Holy Scriptures available in the common tongue led to the creation of the modern English language.  In this incredible documentary, you’ll learn about Tyndale’s spiritual journey and the passion which drove him to defy the ruling powers as he translated the Bible into the language of his people.  You’ll hear about his fearless drive, even in the face of death, and you’ll witness first-hand how the written language can impact both the fate of nations and of individuals.  It’s a fascinating journey through the history of the world’s most popular book filled with insights into the origins of one of the most spoken languages of our day!

William Tyndale: His Life, His Legacy” was produced by Avalon Press and is available on www.Amazon.com.

Underground Reality: Vietnam

26 Aug

Even the most skilled penman has to agree that a picture is worth a thousand words.  Images have the capacity to convey the deepest joy and greatest tragedy.  They move us emotionally, encourage us to think deeply, and oft times spur us to action.  That’s why, this week, we’re featuring VOM’s “Underground Reality: Vietnam”, a video documentary that takes believers inside the church in Vietnam, a country where the practice of the Christian faith can lead to imprisonment, torture, or even death.

Viewers are invited to join in the journey of four “western” High-schoolers as they come face-to-face with what it truly means to be a follower of Christ in a hostile country.  Travel with them as they visit a secret Bible school, a covert summer camp, and an underground church.  Listen as they interview believers who have lost everything for the sake of their faith.  And experience fear first hand as the teens encounter difficulties with government officials intent upon stopping the spread of Christianity.

Join in worship with our brothers and sisters across the ocean as you hear the stories of pastors, students, lay-people, and even other teenagers who have given their all for the One who gave His all for them!  Then, feel the fire as these amazing teens encourage you to give your all as well.
