For those, like me, who sometimes love to read the highlights in a single setting, or for those who may not venture to read an entire book of this nature, I hope that all will enjoy the following article. This is not my summary, but rather an excellent sketch written up by Pastor John Piper and presented at a Pastor's conference a few years back. I share the entirety here:
One other note: I have also thoroughly enjoyed listening to an audiobook by David Teems on "The Man who gave God an English Voice". Available here: Tyndale on Kindle and Audible
What Was the “One Note” He Always Sang?
Stephen Vaughn was an English merchant commissioned by Thomas Cromwell, the king’s adviser, to find William Tyndale and inform him that King Henry VIII desired him to come back to England out of hiding on the continent. In a letter to Cromwell from Vaughan dated June 19, 1531, Vaughan wrote about Tyndale (1494-1536) these simple words: “I find him always singing one note.”1 That one note was this: Will the King of England give his official endorsement to a vernacular Bible for all his English subjects? If not, Tyndale will not come. If so, Tyndale will give himself up to the king and never write another book.
This was the driving passion of his life—to see the Bible translated from the Greek and Hebrew into ordinary English available for every person in England to read.
