God’s Outlaw: The Story of William Tyndale — God’s Outlaw is about international politics, church intrigue, cold-blooded betrayal, and false justice ending in a criminal’s death.

Knox — Renegade. Reformer. Revolutionary. Five centuries after his birth, the influence of John Knox can still be felt across his native Scotland and throughout the world. Presented by Scottish actor Phillip Todd, “Knox” takes another look at the life and legacy of one of the church’s great reformers. Follow in the footsteps of John Knox as he makes his epic journey from Catholic priest to a passionate Protestant preacher facing down the most famous Scottish queen of all time. Incorporating dramatic animations and interviews with leading experts, the story of John Knox is brought to you as you’ve never seen it before. Widescreen. Optional English subtitles.
Calvin, Zwingli, and Brother Klaus — John Calvin, Ulrich Zwingli, and Brother Klaus (Niklaus von Flüe) were three very different men who shaped the Christian faith in Switzerland. John Calvin was as an intellectual giant of the Reformation, Ulrich Zwingli was a humble priest who brought reform to the church and died in battle, and Brother Klaus was a mystic who left everything to seek God in the wilderness. With this docu-drama, award-winning filmmaker Rainer Wälde celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and the 600th anniversary of the birth of Brother Klaus, Switzerland’s most famous saint. In comparing and contrasting these three figures, we see how the practice of the faith changed in Switzerland in the late Middle Ages. These changes would ultimately impact the entire world.
