A Lamp In The Dark The Untold History of the Bible! Could this be the key to the "untold" history of the Bible?
A Lamp in the Dark is an exciting documentary that shows the intriguing history of the Bible. Enter into a world of saints and martyrs battling against spies, assassins, and wolves in sheep's clothing. Through the Middle Ages, the popes and Inquisition forbade biblical translation, threatening imprisonment and death to those who disobeyed. Learn the lives of men like John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, William Tyndale, Myles Coverdale and others, who hazarded their lives to communicate the Bible in languages people could understand.
With the Fall of Constantinople, ancient Greek manuscripts came into Europe, and with them, the clear streams of understanding that would bring about the Protestant Reformation. But what is little known is that Rome launched a 'Counter Reformation' with the intent of destroying all the works of the Reformers.
Could this be the key to the "untold" history of the Bible?
And is it possible that this ancient war on the Word of God continues to this day?

"This film is three hours jam packed with information about the history of the Bible, and the blood that was shed so that our generation could read it. Sadly, too few Christians really understand the sacrifice of the saints who have come before us, especially during the Inquisition era. "A Lamp in the Dark" has been called a "sure cure for Christian apathy," and does not pull any punches in revealing the uncomfortable truth of the Dark Ages." (T. C. - CA)
"This is the most comprehensive film regarding the history of the Bible that I have ever seen to date. This film is easy to follow and understand. It is constantly interjecting pictures and short dramatizations regarding the information being explained. The script is concise and at times compelling. This film leaves no stone unturned." (R. M. - NM)
"This DVD is awesome! I bought it to show the kids for home school history. We are doing the Veritas Press Middle Ages right now. This DVD was an AWESOME companion to the history cards! I was raised Catholic, and left the church about 13 years ago and was born again. What an eye opener..... amazing. May God bless, all who view this DVD!" (C. G. - Colombia)
"While Christians have often been persecuted by the World, they have been even more victimized by the "established church." This movie is a must see for every Christian who takes the Bible seriously." (D. M. - TN)
"An eye opener, it was history I had not known before. It sure makes me more appreciative than ever of how simply I can go to the store and purchase any Bible in any version I prefer not to mention study materials galore! I have God's Word today because of much blood that was shed in order to make that happen. I have the true Gospel to save and sustain me because of the blood of the martyrs. One certainly cannot take the Word of God for granted." (V. L. - NY)
"Very interesting video about the old book! Shows the way through the centuries and shows also clearly that some people don't like the truth." (C. K. - Edinburgh, UK)
