Overview

William Tyndale’s English translation of the Bible (the Tyndale Bible) was the first complete English Bible to be translated directly from the Greek and Hebrew texts. With the timely invention of the printing press, the Tyndale Bible was also the first mass produced English Bible, making Scripture accessible to commoners for the first time in history. Tyndale’s literary skill in translation gave rise to early modern English and left an indelible mark on the language that can still be seen today in well-known phrases like “in the twinkling of an eye” and “the powers that be.” In the end, Tyndale paid for this great legacy with his life. He is memorialized in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs as the man “who, for his notable pains and travail, may be worthily called an apostle of England.”

The Works of William Tyndale, vol. 3 presents Tyndale’s defense of his The Practice of the Prelates in which he denounced Henry VIII’s plan to divorce. Also included is a treatise on the Lord’s Supper examining John 6 and 1 Corinthians 11.

About William Tyndale

William Tyndale (1494–1536) was an English biblical scholar and foundational figure leading up to the Reformation. Tyndale was educated at Oxford and Cambridge and developed a reputation as a gifted linguist, fluent in French, Greek, Hebrew, German, Italian, Latin, and Spanish. Influenced by Erasmus and Luther, he translated the New Testament and the Pentateuch from Greek and Hebrew into English—against the wishes of the Roman Catholic Church. Betrayed to the authorities, Tyndale was condemned as a heretic and burned alive in 1536.
