Archbishop Thomas Cranmer saw to it that the Matthew’s Bible was shown to King Henry VIII, who then licensed the complete Bible in English. Thomas Cromwell, Henry’s Viceregent for church affairs, subsequently encouraged bishops to order copies of the Matthew’s Bible for their churches. Such official sanction sparked tremendous demand for the book.

Pastor John Rogers assembled in 1537 a volume that contained, for the first time as part of a complete Bible, all of William Tyndale's translation work, the 1534 New Testament, the Pentateuch, and the nine historical books, ending with 2 Chronicles. Where there were gaps in Tyndale's work, Rogers used that of Miles Coverdale (1535).

Rev Robert WestAge: 55-65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Good Purchase for the Committed.November 3, 2017Rev Robert WestAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This is an Early Modern English Bible wrought in the Gothic script of the original mid-sixteenth century edition, which many will find hard to read and even to get used to. It would have much more appeal if, like the Geneva Bible (1599) restoration project, it had been put into up-to-date script and orthography, as the Tyndale New Testament has been done. Nonetheless, though not always easy on the eye, it is worth having if you are ready to persevere with it, as I am. I am very glad that I have bought it and will struggle and persevere with it in the New Testament and Psalms for the time being, referring to my up-to-date script, Tyndale, when I need to.
Alistair5 Stars Out Of 5Matthew's Bible Genuine LeatherApril 19, 2017AlistairQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a beautiful piece of history. The text is a calligraphy type so might be difficult for some people to understand. It's easy to read once your eyes adjust to the different type of text. It's fun getting questions and odd looks when I open this Bible in public. I absolutely love the history and I take this Bible almost everywhere.
Rex4 Stars Out Of 5I think every Bible collector should own thisJanuary 14, 2017RexQuality: 3Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4it's a great part in History of the English Bible.
As an Avid Bible collector, I think this Bible should be owned and part of your collection without a single solitary doubt .
It is of average quality in the construction of this Bible.
It is a genuine leather, more than likely ,a bonded but still a genuine leather, gold Gilt .
The print is where it mainly falls short, it's not as clear and crisp as it should be with a text such as this.
Very hard on the eyes maybe the front could have been a little larger?
But still very nice, well worth the price which makes it a great value.
Would I recommend the Matthew's Bible?
Yes, but with one stipulation.
I only recommend it to a Bible scholar or collector that wants a piece of wonderful History as part of his or hers collection.
jdettore1 Stars Out Of 5Matthew's bibleNovember 12, 2016jdettoreQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I read all the other reviews and couldn't wait for my copy to arrive....when it finally did it was not what I expected. I could not understand Any of the text, absolutely unreadable. I don't understand how all those reviews were written. So I sent it back and got the 1611 KJV. I am very much enjoying reading this translation.
Mark H.5 Stars Out Of 5A Must-Have for Anyone Interested in the Evolution of the English Language and Our Christian Heritage!October 24, 2016Mark H.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"John Rogers, operating under the assumed name 'Thomas Matthew,' was the first person to ever print a complete English Bible that was translated directly from the original Greek & Hebrew. He took William Tyndales New Testament, and completed Tyndales work on the Old Testament, publishing his First Edition in 1537. William Tyndale is frequently referred to as the 'Architect of the English Language,' (even more so than William Shakespeare) as so many of the phrases Tyndale coined are still in our language today." (www.greatsite.com)
This facsimile edition is a must-have for anyone interested in the evolution of the English language and the rich history of our Christian heritage!
