Many translations of the Bible have an overall style and uniformity which irons out irregularities and is defined by various factors, such as amplifying the text or producing easy-flowing reading or modern English. Nicholas King’s fresh rendering of the New Testament is not only innovative but also illuminating and faith strengthening. His translation strives to keep as close to the original Greek as possible, frequently incorporating idiomatic or grammatical peculiarities. This results in a translation which is exceptionally stimulating, sometimes startling, but with the result that it shakes off the dust which often settles on passages which have become tired from over familiarity or frequent quotation. Nicholas King’s translation is infused with raw power. Readers will gain new insights and find the Bible imbued with renewed meaning and vigour. ENDORSEMENTS "Instantly accessible, with comments both lively and unobtrusive which bring the text home to readers of all backgrounds. This is a fine and quite distinctive addition to the ranks of Scripture translations. As a guide to the kind of study that will nourish a robust and grown-up faith, it will be hard to beat." Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury "I welcome this fresh translation of the New Testament. Nicholas King has succeeded in putting into English something of the raw power that the first Christians experienced when they heard or read the documents." Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, Archbishop of Westminster "Wonderfully refreshing, like a splash of cold water on one's face. The translation hits you between the eyes and certainly makes you sit up and take notice, waking you from the torpor of over familiarity with the text . . . amazing new insights and understanding that come to light. A splendid piece of work" Desmond Tutu, Former Archbishop of Cape Town "A cutting-edge translation that offers a fresh encounter with the Scriptures, engaging heart and mind. Captivating, a real gem!" Roy Searle President Elect of the Baptist Union of Great Britain "Lively touches which make this new translation gripping and attractive. I hope that this translation will become an icon for the twenty-first century" Henry Wansborough OSB, General Editor of The New Jerusalem Bible
