This two book series is dedicated to the men and women
who loved the Bible more than their lives.
ANNE ASKEW was burned at the stake. Her crime? She was caught reading an English version of the Bible. Before the kindling was ignited, she was granted a pardon. She turned it down. She said, “If it’s a crime to read God’s Word in my own country in my own language, I don’t want to live here anymore.”
JOAN BOCHER was burned at the stake. Her crime? She was caught distributing Tyndale New Testaments in the court of King Henry VIII.

BOOK 1 – An extraordinary intellect, the love of a beautiful woman, and a remarkable mission—life holds great promise for Thomas Torr. Chosen by John Wycliffe to assist in translating the Latin Vulgate into English, the young peasant senses God calling him to an incredible, but dangerous, destiny. Thus begins a thrilling adventure, leading from the catacombs of Rome to the hinterlands of Britain. Here are characters to fall in love with, exotic settings, drama, intrigue . . . and an ending that will stir anew your desire to fulfill God’s call on your life.
When I finished your book, I looked up at all the Bibles on my shelves and wept. — Bookstore Owner, MI
BOOK 2 – A vulnerable woman. A driven man. A remarkable book. Meg Foxe, haunted by her violent past and tortured by nightmares, finds comfort in her husband’s arms . . . when he’s home. Then one day, while he’s away, she stumbles upon a book. A New Testament. Its words comfort and soothe her like nothing else. Problem is, the book is banned and Pernell, her husband, has devoted himself to its annihilation. Beyond the Sacred Page is a thrilling espionage game of cat and mouse set in the turbulent world of sixteenth-century England where politics and religion are a matter of life and death.
It is Easter day and I am rejoicing in our Lord’s resurrection. I am also well into your book, Beyond the Sacred Page. It is excellent! — Dr. Bill Bright, Campus Crusade for Christ
A Note to Readers
Originally intended to be four books, the series was discontinued after the first two were published. It was a disappointing publisher’s decision. I so much wanted to write the story behind the Geneva Bible and King James Version. Doubly so, since those who read the first two books wrote such wonderful letters of appreciation.
Each of these novels is a stand-alone story. There are no recurring characters or storylines. You don’t have to read them in order.
