Singed by Irony – or a Tribute?

William Tyndale was one of the great heroes of history, burned at the stake in 1535 for translating the Scriptures into the vernacular. I was just checking, through Google, what percentage of the King James Bible was taken from his earlier translation. (Answers vary, but the consensus is that it was more than 75 percent.) One of the first links that came up was to a company called Tyndale USA: “the most trusted provider of flame resistant apparel.”
