BESTSELLER*. William Tyndale translated the first English Bible (1526), and introduced memorable phrases like Give us this day our daily bread, and For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, In him we live and move and have our being, and countless passages into English, wordcraft that helped shape the language, passages most of us grew up on. As he accomplished with his 2011 book MAJESTIE, David Teems makes reading a pleasure, directing his aim toward the general reader while providing reliable scholarship. He gets "underneath" William Tyndale, as few writers are capable. That simply means he offers new ways to perceive Tyndale, to understand what drove him, to understand the nobility of his heart, and how it affected his writing style. A jewel of a read.
