not yet rated|write a review
William Tyndale's 1534 translation of the New Testament into English from the original Greek ultimately led to his being hunted down and burnt at the stake for blasphemy. This astounding work of pioneering scholarship formed the basis of subsequent English bibles until after the Second World War and was the version of the bible used by some of our greatest poets. By the twentieth century, however, it had become virutally unknown because of its suppression for political reasons and its difficult early sixteenth-century spelling. The edition - published in modern spelling, as the modern book it once was - makes this masterly work of English prose by one of the greatest geniuses of the ages accessible to today's reader.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome David Daniell has done a wonderful job in his rewriting of W.T.'s New Testament having only changed the spelling. D.D. in his introduction stated this of William Tyndale translation and writings; he has the extraordinary ability to reach off the page and seize the reader's interest... I would agree with him on this. It is quite like King James' Version, as most of OKJ came from W.T.'s translation but I found it much more readable, and more concise. William Tyndale was an extremely gifted translator. D.D. mentions and has left the few errors W.T. had made which I believe King James corrected. Errors or not, it is still an awesome translation. The errors expressed his humanity, not his agenda as some. I would think he would have corrected them all had the 'church' not sent him to his death before he completed his mission of translating God's word for the common English people. The book itself is well bound, excellent for study, notes and highlighting. I would recommend it highly. Very reasonable price. Keep your dictionary close by.
