Letter: Tyndale's translation of the Bible still speaks to us

Sir: In his article ' pounds 1m book that put a price on its author's life' (28 September), Andrew Brown attests that William Tyndale and the Bible translators were prepared to die an agonising death to defend a doctrine of eternal damnation without the possibility of remission. This misses the point entirely: the reason why they were steadfast to the end was their conviction that God had sent his Son to remove the fear of separation from Him. This was the very reason the whole of the New Testament was written, and still is good news today.

Yours sincerely,
