Please treat yourself to this small, full-color reproduction of one of the earliest translations of the New Testament in the English language, available in black, soft genuine leather with a sewn binding and gilt edges. If you are a Protestant, you may not know that Tyndale GAVE HIS LIFE to translate and publish the New Testament (and later the entire Holy Bible) into English at a time when both Church and State forbade all but the Roman Catholic Vulgate Latin Bible, depriving English-speaking Christians of reading the Word of God in their own language. This is a true facsimile, with EVERY PAGE in beautiful full color. I would recommend buying this exquisite little New Testament if it cost $350 or even more; at ChristianBook.com's price, it is an unbelievable bargain. Please buy it while you can and sample your Christian heritage, an Early-Modern-English (1526) translation that helped make possible the eventual publication of the revolutionary and beloved King James Bible nearly a century later in 1611. With every page of the New Testament reproduced in full color, this is by far the most beautiful Bible I own. It is the perfect gift for yourself, your parents, your pastor, or for anyone interested in the history of the English Bible or the English language itself.
The product was clearly advertised as a facsimile. What a treat to have an exact facsimile of Tyndale. The price was amazingly low. For people who are not familiar with a facsimile, do not expect to be able to read the type easily. If you wants an easy read buy a modern print. If you want to have an exact replica of Tyndale this product is for you.
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.
