"But it gives me even greater joy, and I do not exaggerate, to see that the translator-poet-martyr William Tyndale himself is getting the attention he is long overdue, not only as the man who gave us our quintessential English Bible, but who shaped the very English we speak today."

Dr. Craig von Buseck, Editor of Digital Content for Inspiration Ministries' influential website,, comments: "I teach at writer's conferences and I've said many times, if you want to read a great writer, read David Teems. His writing is lyrical. I've read several of his books, includingMajestie, which is about the reign of King James and his famous Bible; Tyndale: The Man who Gave God an English Voice; and the devotional book, Discovering Your Spiritual Center. I loved them all. David builds on his writing legacy with his latest book, Godspeed: Voices of the Reformation."    

Godspeed: Voices of the Reformation (Abingdon Press, 2017), includes 365 daily devotionals. Each one includes an anecdote from the life of an instrumental reformer or a teaching from his or her ministry efforts. Teems then goes on to offer a brief interpretation or modern application, a prayer, a benediction, and an interesting historical tidbit. He frames the teachings with carefully selected, relevant passages of Scripture from early translations.
