The Bible, Nicholas King SJ Translation
(Small copy, shop soiled)
A Study Bible freshly translated by Nicholas King.
For over a decade Nicholas King, an outstanding biblical scholar and Jesuit priest, has been working on a labour of love: his groundbreaking translation of the entire Bible.
The translation is from the original Greek, with the aim of keeping as close to the original as possible, complete with grammatical inaccuracies and idiomatic peculiarities. The result is a translation which is exceptionally stimulating and sometimes startling.
Readers will find that it shakes off the dust which often settles on passages that have become tired from overfamiliarity or frequent quotation.
