Lively, sometimes humorous, yet his scholarship comes through as needed Review by Joan Griffith (St Peter in Chains, Stroud Green Parish Blog, Nov 2012)
Star Rating
King leaves out introductory material and plunges right into the beginning of the Gospel. His style is lively, sometimes humorous, yet his scholarship comes through as needed at various points. He has made his own translation which tries to convey the quality of the Greek. In each section, King includes questions to the reader in the hope of getting us to apply the gospel to our own lives. Because he suggests these pauses, it would serve admirably for prayerful reading and reflection. (Posted on 15/01/2013)
