Reformation Heroes – John Wycliffe (c. 1324 - 1384)

John Wycliffe was without a doubt one of the most important forerunners of the Reformation. Chapter 2 provides a popular overview of his life and his significance in church history. Reference is made to his Bible translation into English and his followers who were called Lollards.

Reformation Heroes – Peter Waldo (c. 1140-c. 1217)

Chapter 1 treats the life and times of Peter Waldo (c. 1140-1217). He was a wealthy merchant who lived in Lyons,  France. Waldo learned that he could approach God through the Mediator, Jesus Christ. Some of Waldo’s followers worked to spread the gospel and were persecuted. A remnant of his followers were later called “the Waldensians.”
