William Tyndale: England’s greatest Bible translator

By Brian Edwards  |  2017 Autumn Lectures

Working from the continent and hunted by the King’s agents, William Tyndale translated the New Testament into English. By 1526, copies were being smuggled into England. This ‘subversive’ book was hated by the church authorities but eagerly read by the common people. His translation was a linguistic masterpiece that strengthened the Reformation and enriched the English language. Ten years later, Tyndale was arrested and martyred for his commitment to justification by faith in Christ alone. In this PowerPoint lecture, Brian Edwards will re-tell the thrilling and challenging story of William Tyndale and the impact of his work.
