David Daniell

Contributors

In this session, David Daniell, biographer of William Tyndale, gave a highly entertaining introduction to how Hebrew entered the English Bible through the work of William Tyndale in the 16th century. Daniell, an unashamed admirer of the Tyndale Bible, demonstrated how Tyndale developed a dramatic and poetic translation that was at once faithful to the Hebrew original and, in the majesty of its language, actually added to its rhetorical power.
