God’s Outlaw: The Story of William Tyndale (1986)

A true story, God’s Outlaw is about international politics, church intrigue, cold-blooded betrayal, and false justice ending in a criminal’s death. But it’s also about victorious faith and spiritual triumph over some of the greatest political and religious forces known in the 16th century.

A simple God-seeking man, William Tyndale somehow became one of the most wanted men in England and all of Europe. Pursued by King Henry VIII, Lord Chancellor Sir Thomas More, and the Pope’s personal legate Cardinal Wolsey, Tyndale darted across Europe to avoid capture — always pushing to complete the task that obsessed him.

The task was translating the Bible into English and publishing it for his fellow countrymen — Englishmen who lived in a country where the Bible and even prayers in English were outlawed by a harsh and rigid religious establishment. Today William Tyndale is renowned as “the father of the English Bible,” and is recognized as one of the major leaders of the English Reformation. But the tale of how he lived and died as “God’s Outlaw” is a compelling “rest-of-the-story,” and is especially a moving encouragement for modern people of faith.

Starring Roger Rees, Willoughby Goddard, Keith Barron, Oona Kirsch, Bernard Archard and more.

The Internet is filled with information, some is critical to understand, most is not essential and the balance is very destructive. Of the critical information, that which is most often overlooked is the inspiring and sacred. Every concerned parent feels an anxiety and responsibility for the proper direction of education and leisure in the home. The Joseph Smith Foundation is an organization dedicated to finding and organizing uplifting materials from across the Internet and then making these materials available to families in their own home using the latest technology available. This is the inspiration behind ZionTube, a collection of the best known videos from YouTube, Vimeo, GodTube, etc, organized by category and made searchable from one site.
