One of the key foundation books of the English Reformation, The Obedience of a Christian Man (1528) makes a radical challenge to the established order of the all-powerful Church of its time. Himself a priest, Tyndale boldly claims that there is just one social structure created by God to which all must be obedient, without the intervention of the rule of the Pope. He argues that Christians cannot be saved simply by performing ceremonies or by hearing the Scriptures in Latin, which most could not understand, and that all should have access to the Bible in their own language - an idea that was then both bold and dangerous. Powerful in thought and theological learning, this is a landmark in religious and political thinking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Interesting and Inspiring Book At first glance I was surprised how bold William Tyndale wrote and rebuked the Roman Catholic Church of his time. But at the same time, his writing style is both elegant and Scripture-based. There's a lot of notes in the book to help out the modern reader understand (whether it deals with history, Scripture, or giving a definition to an old, obsolete word) - these notes are extremely useful. I think a lot of the material can be useful for Christians, and is definitely inspiring.
