How the "Bible" came to be translated into English makes a fascinating chapter in the history of the English language. Second only to William Tyndale in that story stands Miles Coverdale, who in 1535, issued the first printed English translation of the complete "Bible". JF Mozley thoroughly reviews the life and works of the translator, which were of enormous importance in the spread of the Reformation in Europe, and focuses in particular on his versions of the "Bible". He makes full use of the churchwardens' accounts in order to trace the spread of Coverdale's "English Bible" to churches throughout Britain. Coverdale is shown to be a man worthy of honour, not only among "Bible" translators, but among the English reformers as well. The Author: JF Mozley was a specialist in the history of the English Reformation, and wrote extensively on Tyndale and John Foxe.
