In the 1500s, William Tyndale had the vision that one day even the plough could read the Bible for himself. Tyndale worked hard for that goal, at a time when the Word of God was in a foreign language and unavailable to the average Englishman. Tyndale was martyred for his efforts in 1536, but he prayed that God would open the King (Henry VIII) of England’s eyes. Not long after, the king allowed a version to be released. It’s a fascinating story and now comes a book called The Story of the Matthew Bible. The book is by Ruth Magnusson Davis, a retired lawyer, is a scholar of early modern English, the writings of William Tyndale, and the Matthew Bible. Ruth Magnusson Davis joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this milestone in the history of the English Bible.
