Goodman, Christopher 1519-1602

Christopher Goodman BD (1520-1603) was an English reforming clergyman and writer. A Marian exile, he was the author of a work on limits to obedience to rulers, and a contributor to the Geneva Bible. He was a friend of John Knox, and on Mary's death went to Scotland, later returning to England where he failed to conform; he has been described as a "Calvinist pariah".

Christopher Goodman was less notable as a commentator and interpreter than as a translator. While they were exiled in Geneva, Whittingham, Gilby, Goodman, Coverdale, and others prepared a translation of the New Testament (1557) and subsequently the Geneva Bible (1560)
