Author David Teems’ Tyndale Biography Praised by England’s Tyndale Society
By Jeremy Reynalds

NASHVILLE, TENN. (ANS) -- Thomas Nelson author David Teems recently received high praise when England's scholarly Tyndale Society reviewed his critically acclaimed biography, “Tyndale: The Man Who Gave God An English Voice.”
According to a news release obtained by ASSIST News Service, reviewer Dr. William Cooper wrote, “Teems concentrates not on what was important to Tyndale's peers and contemporaries, nor yet to his more modern biographers, but on what was important to William Tyndale himself.”
Cooper praised Teems for his use of authoritative source material and his concise, pithy style of writing, but was most impressed with Teems' bold approach to Tyndale's spiritual side.
"It is an unfashionable thing today to speak of spiritual matters in any biography, but Teems, rightly, is not afraid to do so," the news release said Cooper wrote. He concluded that, “…Teems' biography will refresh many people's thinking concerning the unique and remarkable man, William Tyndale.”
Teems is no stranger to accolades for his biographies. The news release said 100 Huntley Street host Jim Cantelon called his biography, “Majestie: The King Behind the King James Bible,” “… one of the best written books I've ever read.”
Teems’ book shares a story of intrigue and atrocity, betrayal and perseverance. It shines a light on how the Reformation officially reached English shores - and what it cost the men who brought it there.
