A faithful and life-enhancing translation from the Greek with a cutting-edge commentary. The Wisdom Literature, which will be followed by the publication of four other volumes, includes Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, The Song of Songs, Wisdom and the Wisdom of Ben Sira (Ecclesiasticus). Nicholas King’s translation of The New Testament was published to huge acclaim. Church leaders, critics and readers agreed unanimously with the reviewer who described it as ‘dynamite’.
- This translation by a very experienced translator is highly recommended. Review by Paul B Decock OMI ~ St Joseph's Theological Institute, Cedara for Grace & Truth Magazine
This translation... is an important translation, which reminds us that for an understanding of the Old Testament in the early Church our ordinary Bibles are obviously insufficient. This translation is not meant primarily for scholars but for ordinary readers. That is why Fr. King has also added a very small number of comments.
This translation by a very experienced translator is highly recommended. (Posted on 22/02/2011)
