The Theology of William Tyndale

Ralph Werrall

$95.00

Paperback
In his major new study, Ralph Werrell, focuses on the richness of Tyndale's intellectual background. The great reformer's theological roots lie in the Lollard tradition, but his expression and thrust show the range and depths of the influences on him. Alhough he used continental theology, he was not influenced by it. Werrell scrutinizes all these factors, presenting a fresh and original picture of the Protestant martyr. Tyndale started a new strand of Reformation theology. He should be recognised not only for his contribution to the development of the English language, but also for providing us with a reformed theology, bringing new scriptural insights into Christian and academic thinking. Tyndale's contribution to English thought has all too often been under-played and Werrell redresses the balance. His work is: . The first examination of Tyndale's corpus in the setting of his full theological thinking. . A study 'urgently needed', according to Professor David Daniell, Chairman of the Tyndale Society, given that the genial theologian is increasingly seen as the father of the English Bible. . An essential basis for a better understanding of Tyndale's reading of the New Testament, as well as for further works on the subject. . Aimed primary at those concerned with the theology and history of the early Reformation, and non-specialist readers interested in William Tyndale. The Author: Ralph Werrell is an Anglican priest whose doctoral thesis forms the basis for this book. He participated in the foundation of the Tyndale Society in 1995. As an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham, Dr. Werrell is currently studying the roots of Tyndale's theology.
