Listed below are links to weblogs that reference William Tyndale: A Life Transformed by God's Word:



Amen! I listened to this at the beginning of the summer and now want to again. Great message as are all of Piper's biographical messages. Recently listened to one on Jonathan Edwards that was challenging as well.


This was my favorite New Attitude talk. One of the first biographies I ever read as a kid was on William Tyndale, and the story stuck with me. Over the years, I've become very interested in bible translation, and even minored in linguistics in college, hoping to pursue that line of minstry at some point. I was so impacted by the picture Piper painted of Tyndale's love and commitment to the word of God. It forced me to ask myself if I was treasuring it as I should. I've reallized over the last six months or so, that I really idolize relationships. I call it "fellowship". I've been so convicted with how frequently I go to people and not the Lord and his precious word in times of grief, confusion, lonlines, or hurt. The Na theme on scripture was so very, very helpful in this pursuit of treasuring Christ above the people in my life. Tyndale is such an incredible example of this. Thanks for the reminder!


Amazing! We are blessed beyond all measure that Tyndale was steadfast on his mission. I am so thankful for my many translations of God's word and so thankful that I can read it every day. Thank you Jesus for this amazing treasure that you have given us to know You better!
