Publisher's Description

It was an outlawed book, a text so dangerous “it could only be countered by the most vicious burnings, of books and men and women.” But what book could incite such violence and bloodshed? The year is 1526. It is the age of Henry VIII and his tragic Anne Boleyn, of Martin Luther and Thomas More. The times are treacherous. The Catholic Church controls almost every aspect of English life, including access to the very Word of God. And the church will do anything to keep it that way.

Enter William Tyndale, the gifted, courageous “heretic” who dared translate the Word of God into English. He worked in secret, in exile, in peril, always on the move. Neither England nor the English language would ever be the same again.

With thoughtful clarity and a reverence that comes through on every page, David Teems shares a story of intrigue and atrocity, betrayal and perseverance. This is how the Reformation officially reached English shores—and what it cost the men who brought it there.

Praise for David Teems’ previous work Majestie

“Teems . . . pulls together the story of this enigmatic king [ James] with humor and pathos . . . [A] delightful read in every way.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

    This book absolutely blew me away. The Lord used Tyndale to save millions through His word ... and in the process, Tyndale set aside everything this world has ever valued. He's not quite alone in making such a sacrifice, but he does stand alone in terms of the eternal impact he had on mankind. An amazing man, and an amazing life.

    This review was written for Tyndale: The Man Who Gave God an English Voice.
    "While Tyndale would have to learn Hebrew in Germany due to England's active Edict of Expulsion against the Jews, he works promininently into an age where Greek was available to the European scholarly community for the first time in centuries. Erasmus compiled and edited Greek Scriptures into the Textus Receptus--ironically, to improve upon the Latin Vulgate--following the Renaissance-fueling Fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the dispersion of Greek-speaking intellectuals and texts into a Europe which previously had access to none." I knew that he had translated some of the Bible from Latin to English, but I didn't know how much he had done with a target on his back. This was an inspiring and convicting read at the same time. We owe a great debt to William Tyndale! I learned a great deal about Tyndale and those around him and the controversy surrounding the translation of the Bible into the English language. Read this ad get ready to amazed-- cared a lot for you Bible. You have to read this now!

    This review was written for Tyndale: The Man Who Gave God an English Voice.
    I never knew much about this influential man, even as Teem's confesses he is often just a 'ghost of a man' when it comes to biographic information. So it is difficult to build up a true picture of Tyndale who left a permanent indelible mark upon English speaking Christians. His translation of the Bible into English has served as the foundation on which other translations seek to build. Even the venerable King James Bible owes much to Tyndale from the century prior.

    So this is the man that this book seeks to biography. Teems seems to meander around behind Tyndale, turning over the loose rocks or peering through the bushes as he seeks to build up the fullest possible picture of the man. The narrative looks to those around Tyndale, to understand his associates and opponents is to understand something of him.

    It makes for a fulfilling and interesting read and is certainly not a dry intellectual account, although Teems has plenty of research to call on no doubt.

    I received the book through BookSneeze.

    This review was written for Tyndale: The Man Who Gave God an English Voice.
    I recently read Tyndale by David Teems, and I can't say enough about this book. Mr. Teems gives a brief background of Wycliffe and a few others, setting up for the story of William Tyndale. It is a masterful work, I couldn't put this book down. All the trials and persecutions that these men went through to give us the Bible that we use today, gave me a new appreciation for my Bible and I hope I never again take for granted the sacrifices that were made to have the scripture in English today. To God be the Glory!!!!!!!!!

    This review was written for Tyndale: The Man Who Gave God an English Voice.
    You may know the story of Tyndale, a man consumed by the goal to translate the Bible so every English plough boy could read it, a man hunted as a heretic and eventually martyred for his work.

    Tyndale by David Teems does not focus on this story, but rather tells the tale of his work, his world, and his influence on the English language. With extensive research and numerous excerpts from the writings of Tyndale and others, Teems shows how Tyndale was shaped by the Word, not by the violent and crude world around him. He shows how Tyndale's translation of the Bible, echoed in the King James Version, formed the basis of modern English, deeply influencing Shakespeare and all who followed. And he explains Tyndale's beliefs, expressed in his books as well as in his Bible notes.

    This is a brilliant book, illuminating the Reformation era as much as Tyndale's life. I expected to learn about Tyndale when I picked up this book. I also learned about the English language, Sir Thomas More, everyday assumptions of the day, and serving God—the quotes from Tyndale abound with insight on serving God.

    Teems is unlike his subject, though. His language is high flown and occasionally bombastic. His assumptions and comments show a man who seems, to me, to stand aside from rather than beside Tyndale.

    If you are looking for a story about Tyndale, you will need to look elsewhere. If, however, you're looking for a careful analysis of his work, personality, language use, and times, this book will be a joy, except where the author intrudes. Recommended for older teens and adults.
