At sundown the long slope from Fighting Wolf Spring was dotted fora space with men, fresh-shaven, clean-shirted and ed, galloping eagerly toward Hardup fifteen miles away. That they had been practically in the saddle since dawn was a triflenot to be considered; they would dance until another dawn to make upfor it. Hardup, decked meagrely in the colors that spell patriotism, wasunwontedly alive and full of Fourth of July noises. Oh, it's that Swede," he added, and rose. I'll getsomebody; I believe he's dead.

THE LONG SHADOW is a superb book, interweaving conventional history, economics, intellectual and cultural history, and historiography. It is highly instructive and at times it is provocative. To top matters off, it is excellently written. I found The Long Shadow utterly fascinating. While I've done plenty of reading on World War I and its aftereffects, I've never seen such a thorough and wide-ranging study that deals as successfully with as many different aspects as Reynolds has achieved.

First, let me state that I am a huge fan of historical fiction. David L. Robbins is one of my favorite authors; his works of historical fiction on World War II are some of the best that I have ever read. Clara H. Stewart is not David Robbins. The writing style of this book comes across very amateurish in terms of its quality and presentation. The result of this is a lack of credibility of the quality of the material presented. It seems as if the Christian mentality of “since it’s by Christians for Christians than it doesn’t have to be the same quality as the rest of the world” is used here. Though this is a bit ironic as Wycliffe is known most famously for being a master writer and translator.
This book starts out 24 years after John Wycliffe was Born. No mention of his age is given, just that he is young. The dates for this book are not given in the writings, but rather the style of the book is written from the perspective of an omniscient narrator following Wycliffe’s thoughts and actions. The book itself is made up of six parts and an epilogue. Each of the parts then has different subsections that contain the events in a specific time frame as stated by the heading.
Throughout this book, there are various pictures from the author on her trips to England, while this is a nice touch; it just makes the book seem less like a proper historical book, and more like a fictional book.
With the issues of form and style put aside, the content of the book needs to be addressed. The content of this book from what I can tell based on my limited knowledge of Wycliffe seems to be pretty accurate. Obviously certain liberties were taken with the words of Wycliffe and the means in which the information was divulged from his thoughts to his communicates. The issue again though is I don’t know where the author would be wrong and where she would be right, so this creates an issue in me trusting anything that she says outside of what I already know. While the list of books in her Bibliography is extensive, it is hard to know what her ability to decipher any biases out of the writings would be.
The information in this book is pretty straightforward. It covers Wycliffe’s life from the time at oxford all the way through him “passing on the torch” to Purvey. This book tries to give life to the static words found on all the pages of the life of John Wycliffe, a man whose voice was a loud on paper as it was from a pulpit. This book conveys Wycliffe’s attempts to reform the church, pointing out the corrupted theological practices of the Catholic Church, such as the ability to perform sacraments and a need to end the indulgences. The book also conveys Wycliffe’s strong belief in predestination, and the believe in an invisible church, where no one could tell who was saved and who wasn’t.
It appears that Stuart is not trying to push some obscure perspective, or trying to promote an agenda, she is simply just telling the life story of John Wycliffe. For that purpose this book can be something that is valuable as a general read, but it wouldn’t be an appropriate source for an official academic document which makes it hard to take as anything more than a story about a historical man.

Extremely well written as a narrative biography. I picked it up to learn about the Medieval church period and was fascinated by Wycliffe's life. I never knew all that he was involved in seeking to reform the church of his day. Anyone who is interested in church history would enjoy reading this book. It's not a boring history textbook, but a great portrayal of a great man.

I read this book and must say it was excellent. I learned the history of how the bible was put into the hands of the common person through the direction of one individual who refused to 'follow the crowd' of his day. His shadow still is with us today.
