    William Bradford was shaped from a youth by the sacred Scriptures. His love for reading, especially Foxe's Book of Martyrs and the Geneva Bible would shape him in a powerful way.

    Episode 2 - William Bradford: Born in Merrie England

    William Bradford was born into what has been called "Merrie England." But for those seeking to worship Jesus Christ according to the Word of God, things were not so merry. Most people in Bradford's day submitted to Queen Elizabeth as the one authorized to dictate worship in the church. There were some, however, who refused to submit Christ's church to monarchs. These are the men who would come to change Bradford's life.

Real Christian Christian History featuring Real Christians

I have really enjoyed this podcast. It starts with the story of a man that most have heard of, but know nothing about. I love studying puritans but knew almost nothing about his. What a godly man. Thank you for a somewhat personal history, rather than a dry coverage of the facts. I am glad to be part of such a rich heritage, and challenged by yet more members of the cloud of witnesses.
