Meet William Tyndale.

Where was he born? We don't know. When was he born? We can't be sure. Who were his parents? We have no idea. Where did he go to school? We are not certain about that either. Why was he master of the mysterious? Because he made the greatest book in the world make sense to everyone.

But we do know that he was: A man who had two names, Hunted by the king's soldiers, An outlaw in Europe running from city to city, A man who worked all day and into the night, Betrayed and thrown into a cold, dark dungeon cell, finally, he was strangled and burnt at the stake!

And he knew what lay ahead if he was ever caught. So, what was he doing and why did he risk it?

This is the story of one of England's greatest men who gave us the greatest gift of all...

The first English Bible translated from the original languages

William Tyndale believed the Bible should be available in the vernacular—the common people’s speech. He famously declared, “The boy that driveth the plough shall know more of the Scripture than [an educated man].” Though forbidden by the Church to translate the New Testament into English, Tyndale’s determination resulted in its finally being printed in Germany in 1526. Smuggled into England, the Tyndale New Testament was a monumental success. The simple, direct language of many of its verses has resonated down the centuries.

William Tyndale’s legacy stems from his having translated the Scriptures in a way that made the most of the emerging English tongue. Bible collectors and anyone interested in the history of the English Bible will treasure this unique volume.

  • Facsimile of one of only two complete copies from Peter Schoeffer’s 1526 printing, held in the British Library’s collection

William Tyndale's first translation of the New Testament (1526) was printed in Germany, savagely suppressed in England and eventually led to his execution. Yet it makes him the single most important figure in laying the foundations for the English Reformation.

Tyndale's vigorous 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) boldly develops the argument that ordinary believers should take their spiritual sustenance direct from Scripture, without the intervention of (often worldly and corrupt) Popes and prelates. Its vivid 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 fine example of English prose also raises, even today, some powerful questions about the true challenge of living a Christian life. 272 pages, softcover.
