"To call it a biography is actually to conceal the brilliance of what Teems has achieved. [Review of TYNDALE]
Leland Ryken, Wheaton College
David Teems is the bestselling author of TYNDALE: THE MAN WHO GAVE GOD AN ENGLISH VOICE [Thomas Nelson/Harper Collins, 2012] and MAJESTIE: THE KING BEHIND THE KING JAMES BIBLE [Thomas Nelson/Harper Collins, 2010]. In October, 2020, David released his first work of fiction, I RIDDE MY SOULE OF THEE AT LASTE (Budding Grove), a historical novella. The October release marked the 10th Anniversary of the release of MAJESTIE: THE KING BEHIND THE KING JAMES BIBLE. For more information about the new book, visit the I RIDDE MY SOULE page. I RIDDE MY SOULE OF THEE AT LASTE is an extraction from a larger novel, O DEATH ROCK ME ASLEEP, that will release Spring '22.
In April 2017, David appeared on NATIONAL GEOGRAPHICS new series, ORIGINS: THE JOURNEY OF HUMANKIND. The episode David appeared in is called THE WRITING ON THE WALL. The particular segment is called THE DEATH OF A HERETIC. David spoke on the life, achievement, effect, and martyrdom of William Tyndale.

David's biography of William Tyndale enjoyed a swell of interest anticipating the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. This interest did not diminish. TYNDALE: THE MAN WHO GAVE GOD AN ENGLISH VOICE (Nelson, 2012) has enjoyed many #1s in many categories on Amazon, and as current as 2019, seven years after its release.
