William Tyndale: A Biography

ByRobert Demaus

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
DELUXE EDITION INCLUDES A FACSIMILE OF THE FIRST PRINTED ENGLISH SCRIPTURES. This definitive work of Reformation History details the short life and violent death of William Tyndale, the first person to translate the Bible into English from the original languages. Acting as more than a mere hagiographer, Robert Demaus creates a detailed view of sixteenth-century politics, religion, and academia that gives unprecedented insight into the conditions which birthed the English Bible. Among the fascinating extras in this anniversary edition are a rare photolithograph of Tyndale’s prison letter (the only known document in the martyr’s own hand) and a full facsimile reprint of the very first English Scriptures ever printed – the “Cologne edition” of Matthew’s Gospel exactly as it appeared in 1525.
