The Theology of William Tyndale

J. Clarke, 2006 - 242 pages
Ralph Werrell acknowledges that the great reformer was undoubtedly influenced by continental theology, but he focuses on the richness of the man's intellectual background. Tyndale's theological roots lie in the Lollard tradition, but the expression and thrust of his writings show that there was a lot more to this man. Werrell scrutinizes all these factors, presenting a fresh and original picture of the martyr. Tyndale opened up a new strand in Reformation theology. He should be recognised not only for his contribution to the development of the English language, but also for providing us with a reformed theology that brought new scriptural insights into Christian and academic thinking. Tyndale's contribution to English thought has all too often been under-played - in this book Werrell readdresses the balance. Werrell's work is the first study of the man which seeks a full theological understanding of his thinking, and according to Professor David Daniell, Chairman of the Tyndale Society, is a study "urgently needed", given that Tyndale is increasingly appreciated as the father of the English Bible. Werrell has provided an essential basis for a better understanding of Tyndale's reading of the New Testament, as well as for further works on the subject. Aimed primary at academics, as well as at students concerned with the theology and history of the early Reformation, and those interested in William Tyndale, this long-waited study is also suitable for non-specialist readers.
