“Lord, open the King of England’s eyes!”

These, of course, were the last reported words of William Tyndale who was strangled and then burnt in 1536.

His crime? Translating the Bible into English.

His prayer? That King Henry VIII would allow the distribution of the English Bible.

GAFCON General Secretary Archbishop Peter Jensen reflects on the life and work of William Tyndale, whose belief in the clarity of scripture led him to translate the Bible into English.
