Overview

Naturally some considerable parts of the former translation reappear, but that is only because after considerable thought I did not think I could improve upon their wording. However, the reader may rest assured that every single Greek word was read and ...

    Refreshing, Reviving Revision

    I have been reading the King James version of the bible for years and have always found it hard to understand it's language. This translation has helped me comprehend Romans and Hebrews in a way that I never have before in reading the KJV and other translations.(No offense to KJV lovers!) After reading the Phillip's version, I feel like for the first time I can articulate the gospel to others with greater confidence and enthusiasm because I understand it! This is simply an outstanding labor of love on Phillip's part for those of us who have been struggling.

    Straightforward and easily understandable

    I would definitely recommend this book, especially to individuals who are new to the New Testament, or to those put off by archaic translations. I know how much work must have gone into the word-by-word and phrase-by-phrase examination of the text, because I, too, have placed biblical text into more contemporary language, though my work was specifically concerned with Genesis and Job (see 'A New Beginning' by Eric Westra, 2000). Anyway, it was a pleasure being able to see the almost overly familiar be put clearly into a new light so that one may experience it as if it were for the first time. Great book!
