The year is 1536. William Tyndale is a hunted fugitive, a "dangerous man." What is his crime? Translating the Scriptures into English. It's illegal to read, write or even speak the sacred Scriptures in English, but William defies the authorities and begins the dangerous work of translating the Bible. This episode of The Torchlighters follows William's adventures as he works in secret, moving from town to town as a fugitive to avoid capture. Friends help him, but enemies may be lurking around any corner! Children will be challenged by William's devotion to bring God's Word to every man, even at the risk of his own life.
