The Works of Myles Coverdale (4 vols.)
Myles Coverdale is best known for producing the first complete printed Bible in English. Published in 1535, it is known in history as the "Coverdale Bible." Coverdale went on to oversee the editing for the "Great Bible," the first "authorized" Bible of England. While his contributions to English Bible translation is well documented, many haven't been introduced to Coverdale's other inspiring works or his interesting life story. The Works of Myles Coverdale (4 vols.) brings together all of Coverdale's writings and translations, as well as his personal letters, sermons, hymns, poems, and more. Also included is a biography about Coverdale. A contemporary and friend of William Tyndale and Thomas Cromwell, much of Coverdale's life was spent avoiding persecution for his beliefs and work. His life experiences made him the perfect candidate to write the preface for The Letters of the Martyrs, an inspiring and heart-wrenching collection of letters written by over twenty imprisoned men before their execution, some letters written only hours before their death.
