Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
What Daniell did for Tyndale's translation of the New Testament ( LJ 2/15/90) he has now done for the latter's translation of the Old Testament (OT). In the introduction to this volume, he refers to the biographical information in the previous work, then focuses on the translation and publishing of Tyndale's OT. He offers nothing but praise for Tyndale's accomplishment, often touting his accuracy and phrasing above that of later translations. For instance, Daniell makes a case for the translation of Joshua through 2 Chronicles as being by Tyndale though it was originally attributed to Thomas Matthew. Often as interesting as the translation of the OT books themselves are Tyndale's introductions and marginal notes (primarily those accompanying the Pentateuch). In both, Tyndale finds many occasions to criticize the Catholic Church--and the pope in particular (for example, at Exodus 32:25-29, ``The pope's bull slayeth more than Aaron's calf''). Any library that has Daniell's previous volume will want to add this one to its collection. Recommended for public, academic, and seminary libraries.-- Craig W. Beard, Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham Lib.
