This story also appears in GLORY TO GOD #1.  From the artist:  "William Tyndale is, in my appraisal, the true father of modern English letters (not Shakespeare).  Over 85% of Tyndale's New Testament remained intact in subsequent translations, including the King James Version.  He coined many English phrases that originated in his early 1500's New Testament translation which remain in common use to this day."
Stevens drew this story in a radically different approach from his 'signature style'.  Here he incorporated the pseudo-engraved look of many fin-de-siecle illustrators as well as bold art nouveau outlining and, finally, stippling at varying intervals, creating unexpected, kaleidoscopic shifts in style.
