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

Excerpt from full review...

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)
