Of Fire in the Bones

I just finished reading a wonderful book called "Fire in the Bones." It is about William Tyndale, who is often referred to as the 'Father of the English Bible'. He is not very well known nowadays, but he should be, as he was primarily responsible for giving us one of the greatest gifts the world has ever had--the Bible translated into English. One of his better known quotes is (speaking to one of his critics): "If God spare my life, ere many years I will cause a boy that driveth the plough shall know more of the scripture than thou dost."

God bless William Tyndale for the great gift he has given us, and for sacrificing his very life so we could have and read the great truths of the scripture today.

That sounds like a wonderful book! I was really impressed by the conference talk about him, I think I'll out it on my to-read list! Thanks!
