It is the age of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Martin Luther, Thomas More, and a man by the name of William Tyndale.
The Catholic Church controls almost everything for the English and there are people who wish to change the way people get the word of God. William Tyndale is one of the people who plans to help change the world. He lives and works in secret, because he has been exiled from England.
What will happen to Tyndale and the English Reformation?
Author- David Teems and his wife live in Tennessee near their grown sons. He has written four other books, one of them, Majestie: The King Behind the King James Bible.
My Thoughts- I thought this book was very interesting. Some of it was long and boring, but I can understand if there is not a lot of information about his daily life. Sometimes I thought there was a little too much information about Thomas More. I know he was an important character in Tyndale’s history, but there was too much information about him.
William Tyndale was an awesome man. He wrote a Bible with words that everybody would understand and gave his permission for all future translations. Tyndale is a person we Christians can look up to. Today’s writers can take note as well, because Tyndale wrote for his ideal reader, who was the plowboy. That is something to remember when writing.
Tyndale also made a lot of new words which can be learned in the appendix. And many of them we use today.
I highly recommend.
