    A 'SpeakEasy' Translation of the Four Gospels

    {Note: This book is not longer in print. It is perhaps the most precise translation the the Four Gospels that I have read.) This is a beautiful translation of what is usually pretty dull. Mr. Lattinore has given us a fabulous four-part account of the successes and trials of the 'Son of Man'. The amazing thing about this translation is that, with each writer, the syntax changes. Mr. Lattimore has that ability, and I aplaud him. Read carefully and Matthew 'really' is a reformed tax collector with the same doubts, and desires that we have. A very even writer. Smooth. Mark has belief in simple truths, and writes in the same tone. Stipled language. Short and sweet. If you want simple truths, Mark is your author. Luke is a physician. He tears things apart. Very scrutinizing and precise, but very devoted. (Actually, I can't think of a more even group for Jesus to hook up with.) His verbage is just what you would expect for a physician. Go on, read the book. Lattimore does a great job. John - This is the last book of the Gospels and I think that John is taking a bit of all of the writers, but in his own way. He is the judge. He balances tone, wording, and meaning into something that makes a person feel 'at ease'. I don't know what it is, but he puts an even level on the other three writers. Maybe that's why he's the last writer. Mr. Lattimore's translation is a true relection of the gospel writers' novellas of the man whom they followed as their 'Son of Man'. Great reading for anyone.
