Quick Overview

You'll totally love this modern version by Nicholas King.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu said of Nicholas King’s translation of the New Testament ‘it hits you between the eyes’.


One reason for this is that Nick has not smoothed out the language to flatter modern ears, rather he gives us the story as the authors themselves would have told it, complete with grammatical errors and local dialect.


This means that the translation is not always easy to read. That is because the New Testament is not always easy reading; but we are certain that young Christians who use this translation will grow in their love of God’s word and they will find helpful notes here, so that passages that they thought were impossible to understand (or even impossible to believe) actually turn out to be God’s word for them.


‘Enjoy this extraordinary book’, says Nick King. ‘Step aboard and listen to the ancient voices that have been telling and hearing the stories for upwards of 2000 years and find your own story and your own journey to God written in them.’

A must buy Review by luefox
Star Rating
We bought this for our pre-teen boys after loving the popular version for ourselves. The translation is superb. It has recharged our Bible reading. It is completely different than any modern version because of the format and running commentary--yet obviously a scholarly, loving and true translation. Sadly the young people's edition does not have young people's commentary, as we had expected--which is why we only gave it 4 stars. Tom and Marie. (Posted on 10/10/2012)
