Product Description

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).
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.
Features:
  • Facsimile of an excellent copy of the 1537 Matthew’s Bible
  • Features clear, legible type throughout (marginal commentary is in smaller type)
  • Authoritative new preface
  • Great for Bible collectors and anyone interested in the history of the English Bible

    This 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.

    it'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.

    I 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.

    "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!

    This review was written for Matthew's Bible, 1537 Edition--Hardcover.
    What a privilege to hold a reprint of one of the most influential early English translations of Scripture in my hands! 100% delighted. I don't mind the text being in black and white at all, as I didn't purchase it to be my everyday reading Bible, but to examine a reproduction of one of the true spiritual masterpieces of English literature. I also have reprints of Tynedale's New Testament, the Geneva Bible, and the first edition of the KJV, which I hold in equal esteem.
