A Biography

Book - 1994
Rate this:
William Tyndale (1494-1536) was the first person to translate the Bible into English from its original Greek and Hebrew and the first to print the Bible in English, which he did in exile. Giving the laity access to the word of God outraged the clerical establishment in England: he was condemned, hunted, and eventually murdered. However, his masterly translation formed the basis of all English Bibles including the King James Bible, many of whose finest passages were taken unchanged, though unacknowledged, from Tyndale's work.
