The Most Dangerous Man in Tudor England

The BBC have just broadcast an hour long documentary on William Tyndale (UK only). Caveat; I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, but if it illuminates just half of Tyndale’s life it’d be worth watching. William Tyndale is comfortably my favourite Christian from church history, he lived and died to bring the word of God to the people of Britain, and though he died not seeing it accomplished, God brought it about soon after.

The biography on Tyndale is David Daniell’s William Tyndale: A Biography. It’s long and exhaustive, but well written. John Piper has a good talk outlining Tyndale’s life and ministry (also transcribed) if you want something shorter.
