It was once an outlawed ebook, a textual content so harmful “it may perhaps basically be countered through the main vicious burnings, of books and males and women.” yet what ebook may perhaps incite such violence and bloodshed? The yr is 1526. it's the age of Henry VIII and his tragic Anne Boleyn, of Martin Luther and Thomas extra. the days are treacherous. The Catholic Church controls virtually each element of English existence, together with entry to the very notice of God. And the church will do something to maintain it that manner.
Enter William Tyndale, the proficient, brave “heretic” who dared translate the notice of God into English. He labored in mystery, in exile, in danger, consistently at the stream. Neither England nor the English language might ever be a similar back.
With considerate readability and a reverence that comes via on each web page, David Teems stocks a narrative of intrigue and atrocity, betrayal and perseverance. this is often how the Reformation formally reached English shores—and what it price the boys who introduced it there.
