Works of William Tyndale (2 volume set)
William Tyndale is justly best
remembered as a Bible translator.
During the last eleven years of his
short life he published three editions
of the complete New Testament, the
Pentateuch, the book of Jonah, and a
few other parts of the Old Testament.
He may well have left behind him in
manuscript form a translation of the
Old Testament's historical books from
Joshua to 2 Chronicles, which was
published as part of 'Matthew's Bible'
in the year following his martyrdom. In
the last letter from his pen, we see
him zealous to make progress with the
translation of the Old Testament, as
languishing in his final imprisonment
he requests that his 'Hebrew Bible,
Hebrew grammar, and Hebrew dictionary'
be granted to him.
There is little doubt that Tyndale
could have translated the whole of the
Bible into English if he had given
himself exclusively to that work. But
alongside the work of translation he
felt it was necessary to contend
earnestly for the Reformed faith and so
he threw himself into several of the
key theological controversies of the
times. For this 'Apostle of England'
the Bible must not only be translated,
its teachings also must be expounded
and applied in a practical way. To such
work of exposition and application
Tyndale gave himself with a passion,
and in so doing not only proved himself
a master of true biblical
interpretation, but has left to
posterity works of lasting value. As
F.F. Bruce wrote in another context: A
reprint of this kind is no mere
archaeological curiosity; one who was
so intensely a man of the Bible as
Tyndale was speaks to more ages than
his own, and in the following pages we
shall find that he has much to say to
us, if we pay heed to what we read.
