The Daring Mission of William Tyndale
England was cloaked in spiritual darkness during the sixteenth century. While the Protestant Reformation caught fire on the European continent, the people of England suffered under spiritually ignorant and superstitious priests who read the Bible to them in indecipherable Latin.
Gripped by a desire to see this fog lifted, the Reformer William Tyndale set out to give the Scriptures to his countrymen in their own language, so that the common farmer in the field might have a better knowledge of the Bible than the pope. Since these translation efforts were considered heresy, Tyndale spent his final decade as a fugitive. But he would not be deterred from his mission, even if it cost him his life.
In The Daring Mission of William Tyndale, Dr. Steven Lawson tells how Tyndale became the father of the modern English language and birthed a legacy that lasts to this day. This book is a welcome reminder of the power of God’s Word and our privilege of having a Bible that we can know and understand.
This book is part of the Long Line of Godly Men Profile Series, edited by Dr. Steven Lawson.
