Excerpt from A Study of Tindale's Genesis Compared With the Genesis of Coverdale and of the Authorized Version

To trace, however, the rise of England's greatness from the foundations laid in 'a tyrant's strenuous efforts to defend his own position, ' '3 is not the purpose here. Nor is it the purpose of this work to show how the world-power of the English language lies in its inherent strength; how it was protected during the years of the Norman usurpation: conserved in the great literary monuments of the nation's vernacular; brought again to activity in Chaucer; polished, refined, enlarged by Spenser, Ben Jonson, Shakespeare, and Milton. But it is the purpose to show, in some measure, the debt of the language to the translation of the Bible by one who sought to make the Bible 'a book for the plough boy, ' for simple folk; that their lives should be made purer by its precepts, more unified by the teachings of the Old Testament, more lovely by the Sermon on the Mount, more holy by the strong admonitions of the Epistles.
