Tyndale is a good subject. His life is not an easy one to dramatize and where the author has not entirely succeeded, he brings the book to bear successfully on the point that the English speaking world is in debt to Tyndale for putting the Bible into the vernacular. We are so apt to take our Bible for granted that it is well that church people in their early years learn of the struggle to produce an English version. Discouraged by all but a few of his friends and associates, branded as a heretic by ecclesiastics and at the last betrayed by one he counted a friend and executed, Tyndale nevertheless persisted in his determination. It is disappointing that the narrative contains the kind of platitudinous writing down that makes much of it too ""adolescent"" for adolescents.
