|Summary, etc.:|| William Tyndale brought the English scripture to the common citizen. His efforts ultimately cost him his life, but his contribution to English spirituality is measureless. Five centuries after his death at the stake, Tyndale's presence still looms wherever English is spoken. The author tells the story of the man known as the "architect of the English language," the English Paul who defied a kingdom and a tyrannical church to introduce God to the plowboy.
