William Tyndale was the first man ever to attempt translating the Bible into English from the original languages (Wycliffe had translated from the Latin Vulgate). His work in this field was vital to the production of English-language Bibles at the time of the Reformation. Because of his ground breaking effort to produce a Bible in English, the editor of this biography of Tyndale notes that "there are not lacking those who consider him [Tyndale] to be the one man to whom modern Englishmen owe the largest debt of gratitude" (p. 5). Thus anyone interested in the Reformation in English-speaking countries would necessarily need to know about Tyndale and his work. Furthermore, Robert Demaus' biography of this great Reformer was done so well that "it was but natural that the book should at once become the standard authority on the subject, which it is now admitted on all hands to be" (p. 5).
This book is a standard work on one of the most important Reformers, who gave his life in service to Christ and the brethren.
