Description : William Tyndale published The Obedience of a Christian Man two years after he presented his 1526 English translation of the Bible, a forbidden undertaking, which eventually led to his execution. His vigorous, direct translation of the New Testament was intended to make it accessible even to the "boy that driveth the plough." In The Obedience of a Christian Man, he articulates his religious principles in what became one of the most important publications of the first phase of the English Reformation. He boldly develops the argument that ordinary believers should live directly according to Scripture without the intervention of worldly and often corrupt popes and prelates. This fine example of English prose raises, even today, powerful questions about the challenge of living a Christian life.
Description : William Tyndale, one of the greatest figures in the Christian history, is more widely known as a principal translator of the King James Bible. His book " The Obedience of a Christian man", which has survived about 500 years, is his key work of theology that has shaped the Christian history.
Description : "e;If our study in the school of obedience is to be of any profit, rest not till you have written this down: Daily obedience to all that God wills of me is possible, is possible to me."e; Is such total obedience possible? We seem always to be failing! In The School of Obedience, Andrew Murray reveals not only what God demands, but also how obedience to those demands is possible through Christ's perfect example. Basic, practical steps toward a life in line with the will of God.
Description : This volume is the first attempt to establish a body of work representing English thinking about the practice of translation in the early modern period. The texts assembled cover the long sixteenth century from the age of Caxton to the reign of James 1 and are divided into three sections: 'Translating the Word of God', 'Literary Translation' and 'Translation in the Academy'. They are accompanied by a substantial introduction, explanatory and textual notes, and a glossary and bibliography.
