The Works of William Tyndale (3 vols.)
by William Tyndale
The Works of William Tyndale presents the writings of one of the most the important figures of the English Reformation and Western history as a whole. 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.”
