The King James Bible, published in 1611, owes much of its linguistic beauty and elegance to William Tyndale, who in the early 1520s translated the Bible into English, which was strictly forbidden by both the Church and the crown. He made his translation after emigrating from England, but he was hunted down and eventually burned at the stake for his work. Simon Vance’s clear and even narration matches the gravitas and drama of Tyndale’s life. He pauses after key points—whether sentences, phrases, or even single words—for added emphasis. And he does it without artifice. His pauses enhance, rather than detract, from the author’s emphasis. The biography could be tedious, but Vance’s delivery keeps listeners engaged.
