THE BIBLE: LIKE NO OTHER BOOK


The Bible has been burned and banished by more people and cultures than any other book. For centuries the only translation of the Bible available to the peoples of Europe was a fourth-century Latin translation called the Vulgate. Only priests and scholars knew Latin, so around the year 1500, William Tyndale decided to translate the Bible into English.


After Tyndale’s Bible was published, the Catholic Church had it burned, and placed a bounty on his head. Tyndale was convicted of heresy and strangled to death. Then they burned his body, just for good measure. Tyndale’s final words were "Lord! Open the King of England’s eyes." Four years later, the king ordered not one but four English translations to be made. All of them were based on Tyndale’s translation.


The Bible is like no other book.
