Product Description

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.

  • Co-publication with the renowned British Library
  • Facsimile of one of only two complete copies from Peter Schoeffer’s 1526 printing, held in the British Library’s collection
  • Features clear, legible type and original, color illustrations

    Mr. Tyndale wanted the Word of God in people's hands for a reasonable cost to them. This present $19.99 cbd.com SUPER SALE is the 1st time the 1526 has been offered 75% off !!! Even the Hardcover is $30 reg 47. As soon as I saw this in the 413916 Catalog : Item# AE562910 ( Reg $79.95)

    I ordered 12 copies. This 1st work of Wm. Tyndale reads better than his 1534 revised. This is THE ABSOLUTE BEST NEW TESTAMENT available today. What a glorious priviledge to have a BRAND NEW facsimile of 1 of the only 3 original copies left, in The British Museum.

    This bible is pocket sized. I don't recall reading anywhere where it said pocket sized. I was really disappointed because it didn't look like a bible at all. The contents are good. I scored it so low because I don't feel they gave a clear picture of the product appearance wise.

    I already wrote one review when I recieved the book and my opinion in that review hasn't changed, except that I am almost done reading it and I noticed that after Philemon, it goes to I Peter, II Peter, I John, II John, III John, Hebrews, James, Jude, then Revelations. Whereas in my other Bibles, of which I have the 1560 Geneva Bible also, it goes from Philemon to Hebrews, James, I Peter, II Peter, I John, II John, III John, then Jude, which the latter order is the same also in my other Bibles. So, therefore I do not know whether it was put together in the wrong order, or that is the order in which it was in the beginning, since it is the oldest Bible of them all. Does anybody know?

    For a person interested in Reformation History, or the History of the English Langage or History of Bible Translations, the Tyndale New Testament is a must have. However it is difficult to read the old English, so is not for those who have trouble reading.
