Abstract:

"'From Tyndale to Madison' is a sweeping literary work that passionately traces the epic history of religious liberty across three centuries, from the turbulent waning days of medieval Europe to coloinal America and the birth pangs of a new nation. With literally a cast of thousands, the tapestry of world history is on display here. From the remarkable translation work of William Tyndale to the court intrigues of Henry VIII and Thomas More, the battle for the English Bible culminates in the venerable King James Version. Also detailed is the spread of the Reformation through the eyes of Martin Luther, John Knox, and John Calvin--in their own, often surprising words"--Page 2 of cover.
