From the Back Cover:
Startled, he froze. What was that? A cracking sound! A soldier perhaps? His heart pounded in his throat…. As quickly as he could, he hid the secret packet under his vest again. Would his mission end in failure after all? He held his breath as he peered into the darkness. But everything remained silent. Cautiously he moved closer...

In the night of November 2, 1561, a sealed packet was thrown over the wall of the castle in Tournai. It was the Dutch Confession which Guido de Bres had written. There was also a letter to King Philip II in which Guido de Bres wanted to make clear to him that the heretics did not have bad intentions. They wanted to honor God and the king!

In this book you will read the story of Guido de Bres (1522-1567)
