I'd like to read (okay, at least skim) The Confutation of Tyndale's Answer but copies I've found are prohibitively expensive. I had hoped to find it online... Anybody know?
No idea, but if you find it, lemme know. More is my confirmation saint, and I added him to my middle names.
Do you attend a college that subscribes to the database Early English Books Online?  Or live near a college that subscribes to this database?

If so, you should be able to find it there. 

This database has scanned every book printed in Britain from the invention of the printing press to 1700.

I found it in EEBO through the University of Maryland! Except they wouldn't let me sign in because I haven't been a student there in about a dozen years :(

Thanks! You've given me hope, I'll keep looking.

I saw in another thread that you are part of the Diocese of DC. You could just visit the Library of Congress and access the EEBO there. You could either print it out or read it there.

One warning is during the early 16th century the long s was used which looks like an f. In addition spelling had not been standardized yet. So it will be a challenge to star reading, but after a few pages you should get the hang of it. 
Thanks for the suggestion! The Library of Congress is awesome. I'll make myself a note about the website and look for it next time I'm up there, it's just that this writing of his is an enormous tome so I wish it were more accessible. But, I'll take what I can get.  :)

Yeah, unfortunately it doesn't look like it's ever been republished in the modern era.  Looks like you're going to have to go back to the original.
