"The purpose of this book is to show, in some measure, the debt of the English language to the translation of the Bible by one who sought to make it 'a book for the plough-boy,' for simple folk whose lives might be made purer through its precepts. 'Our Bible should be popular' - a book for the people, endowed with simplicity and power. Tindale avowedly began and carried on his work so that ordinary persons might find the language of his translation familiar from their first reading." - publisher.
