Good book. It is hard to fully state what a magnitude of service, and sacrifice that William Tyndale gave in trying to translate and make the bible available in the English language and the amazing talent that he possessed of understanding the languages necessary for that to happen. The "fire in the bones" that the title refers to is the amazing spirit that William Tydale had that never gave up, even at his execution, trying to get the bible to everyone in a language they could understand so that anyone (blacksmith, lawyer, plowboy) could know for themselves the love and power of the word of God. I can't leave out how much I learned about the contrast and similarities of Sir Thomas More and William Tydale. Both had great influence, intelligence and passion. But one passion was fueled by blind determination of old traditions, and one passion was fueled by love of the scriptures.
