The Bible in English

Full Product Description

How did the Bible get translated into English and made available to English-speaking people? The Bible in English tells the dramatic story of these events, and of the human costs involved. In this concise yet thorough study, John Long answers the above questions, exploring the lives and deaths of John Wycliffe and William Tyndale and explaining their roles in translating the Latin Vulgate and the New Testament, respectively. Long discusses the Roman Catholic Church's resistance to translation of the scriptures from Latin into English and other languages, and he shows which parts of Tyndale's translation endured to appear in the King James, Revised Standard, American Standard, New American Standards, New King James, and other translations of the Bible in English. This easy-to-read, comprehensive book is a fascinating study of a dramatic time in the Bible's history.

The Bible in English by John D. Long was published by University Press of America in May 1998 and is our 52876th best seller. The ISBN for The Bible in English is 9780761811169.
