Overview

William Tyndale's first translation of the New Testament (1526) was printed in Germany, suppressed in England and eventually led to his execution." "Tyndale's direct English was substantially incorporated into the Authorized Version of 1611, and it made the New Testament available for the first time - in Tyndale's famous determination - even to the 'boy that driveth the plough'. The Obedience of a Christian Man (1528) develops the argument that ordinary believers should take their spiritual sustenance direct from Scripture, without the intervention of Popes and prelates. Its discussion of sacraments and false signs, the duties of rulers and ruled, and valid and invalid readings of the Bible, makes the book a landmark in both political and religious thinking. This example of English prose also raises, even today, some questions about the true challenge of living a Christian life.

Meet the Author

William Tyndale (c1495-1536) produced the first translation of the New Testament from the original Greek rather than the church's Latin version. It was denounced by the English bishops and Tyndale settled in Antwerp. Arrested for heresy and imprisoned in 1535, he was then strangled and burnt at the stake. David Daniell is Emeritus Professor of English at the University of London, author of the authoritative biography of Tyndale (Yale, 1994) and editor of Tyndale's Biblical translations.

    GREAT CONTENT BUT TERRIBLE PROOFREADING.

    I would really like to rate this book higher, for the content is wonderful and enlightening, however, the numerous printing mistakes are so annoying. Namely, words running together and awkward separation of sentences so that new paragraphs are started mid sentance, with no attention to proper punctuation, upper case/lower case, and incorrect indentation. The sheer sloppiness of the format really detracts from the enjoyment of reading the book.
