Product Description

William Tyndale's 1534 translation of the New Testament into English from the original Greek ultimately led to his being hunted down and burnt at the stake for blasphemy. This astounding work of pioneering scholarship formed the basis of subsequent English Bibles until after the Second World War and was the version of the Bible used by some of our greatest poets. By the twentieth century, however, it had become virtually unknown because of its suppression for political reasons and its difficult sixteenth-century spelling. This edition-published in modern spelling, as the modern book it once was-makes this masterly work of English prose by one of the greatest geniuses of the age accessible to today's reader.

  • Single column format

Publisher's Description

This translation of the New Testament into English from its original Greek was printed in Germany in 1534 and smuggled back into England. It therefore escaped the fate of Tyndale’s previous version, which had been seized and publicly burnt by the authorities. The 1534 edition outraged the clerical establishment by giving the laity access to the word of God, in print in English for the first time. Tyndale, who was already in exile for political reasons, was hunted down and subsequently burned at the stake for blasphemy.
For the next eighty years—the years of Shakespeare among others—Tyndale’s masterly translation formed the basis of all English bibles. And when the authorized King James Bible was published in 1611, many of its finest passages were taken unchanged, though unacknowledged, from Tyndale’s work.
Although, therefore, this astounding work of pioneering scholarship was the basis of all subsequent English bibles until after the Second World War, and though it was the version of the Bible used by some of our greatest poets, it is today virtually unknown because of its suppression for political reasons because of its difficult early sixteenth-century spelling.
Now for the first time this version is published in modern spelling, as the modern book it once was, so that this masterly work of English prose by one of the great geniuses of the as is available to today’s reader.

    It is a good companion to Tyndale's 1526 NT translation, Item #WW562903, which I have. I can compare the two styles of the English language. I have studied about William Tyndale's life and he was a deep spiritual man of faith and courage, someone we can all imitate besides our saviour Jesus Christ.

    William Tyndale is one of my Christian heroes. He gave everything he could (including his life) to see that the Greek NT would be published into English so that the simple plowboy of England could read the Bible - he reached his goal. God blessed his labors so much that it is estimated that 80% plus of the KJV is from Tyndale's translation. If you enjoy looking at the history of the English Bible I highly recommend that you own & read this work.

    For its time, even though some of the language is dated now, it is one of the greatest New Testament translations ever make.

    I was very pleased to see this New Testament made available to the modern reader at an economical price.I have only one negative comment; the binding and paper used make it difficult to study.The cover is extremely stiff, and the paper is rough. I have no idea why this choice was made.Just now on your website I see that a decently-constructed NT has been made available. Since I already have the text in my hands, I am on the fence about acquiring the more expensive binding.
