William Tyndale’s New Testament Gently Updated
Ruth Magnusson Davis of Baruch House Publishing, Vancouver Island, Canada, has updated William Tyndale’s New Testament, as it was contained in the Matthew Bible of John Rogers.
Rogers first published the Matthew Bible in 1537. Few people know that it formed the basis of the KJV. Ruth plans to update all the ‘Matthew’ scriptures, but has first published the New Testament here. Her approach is not to make a new translation, but to update that which we first received, and thus to strengthen it for today (Revelation 3). She has faithfully kept the style and truth of the original.
The paperback edition is print-on-demand. The interior is identical to the hardcover book except for an addition to Rogers’ note (c) upon John 13.
Sample scriptures are on Ruth’s website
“My goal was not to make a modern bible, but to keep as much of the old as possible while making the language understandable for today.”
– Editor Ruth Magnusson Davis
Ruth is a retired lawyer and a scholar of Early Modern English, the works of William Tyndale, and the Matthew Bible. She worked almost seven years full time on this New Testament.
