    1. Forasmuch as our holy prelates and our chostly religious, which ought to defend God s word, speak evil of it and do all the shame they can to it, and rail on it and bear their captives in hand that it causeth insurrection and teacheth the people to disobey their heads and governors, and moveth them to rise against their princes and to make all common and to make havoc of other men s goods Therefore have i made this little treatise that followeth containing all obedience that is of God In which w [...]

    2. Written during the early years of the Reformation when the Protestants were being accused of rebellion and unrest, Tyndale wrote this book to assert that they were actually restoring God s ordained institutions of family and state The church had undermined these institutions and released men from their proper obedience It had made these institutions mere branches of the church It was the Pope who had undermined society and caused continual unrest and wars Tyndale appeals to all men in all places [...]

    3. In this book, published two years after Tyndale s first edition of the English New Testament, he expounds his understanding of the Christian s responsibilities before God and before God ordained human authority He backs up each point with quotations and exposition of Scripture, challenging the reader to verify for themselves whether what he is saying is in agreement with God s Word.His theology appears to be in most points pretty much the same as that adopted by many of the later Dissenter denom [...]

    4. The Obedience of a Christian Man By William Tyndale.Most folks know of William Tyndale as the man who translated the first English Bible, which with certain royal guidelines, was used to transcribe the 1611 edition authorized by King James The Obedience of a Christian Man was a primer on Christian living that was used to spark what is called the English Reformation It is a practical book on how we are to live as believers Children are to obey their parents, servants are to obey their masters and [...]

    5. this was a great book Took a long time to read as it is pretty intense but good to understand thinking during the reformation along with a little ranting but a good read I would have given it 3 1 2 stars but not quite 4 due to the fact that it is not so easy to read, but that is mostly on account of the reader.

    6. For a guy who trumpeted everyday plain style, his style sure is wonky Tyndale had a huge influence on the character of the early English church, and as such his particular flavor of reform is interesting in light of how the English church would develop compared to the much fiery continental reformation over the next century Also, allegories are literal Literal allegories.

    7. Very good book to read Very challenging in living a Christian life in total obedience to God The author is very much against the Pope throughout the book It is a very detailed book, lots of Scripture used Difficult to read, but well worth.

    8. Not a bunch of smarmy do goodisms, like you might find in some books on Christian obedience Pretty earthy stuff here.
