William Tyndale and the Reformation in England

In 1536, an English priest and scholar was led from his cell to a place of execution, where he was burned to death on a pile of dry wood. His crime? He translated the Bible into English. His name is William Tyndale. Why would an esteemed scholar put himself in such danger just to see the Bible placed in the hands of all English people? And why would the government hunt him down and kill him? Find out more as Lucas, Linus, and Grace chat with Emily Lucas, tutor in Church History at Union School of Theology in London.
