William Tyndale: A Pathway to the Holy Scriptures
Who was William Tyndale and what links him to the Bible we can so easily access here in the UK and around the world today? Pastor and church history enthusiast, Keith Berry takes on a journey around the City of London to find out more about the man who said, “If God spare my life, ere many yeares I wyl cause a boy that driveth the plough to know more of the scripture, than he doust”.
Keith starts the journey at St Dunstall’s in Fleet Street, a place best known for the newspaper industry, but the very church William Tyndale began his mission to get the Bible translated into the language ordinary English people. Then follow the story to St. Paul’s Cathedral where Keith explain why Tyndale’s translations of the New Testament were burnt, and then to the Embankment where a statue stands of the man who never lived to see his mission completed.
