Nicholas King is a lecturer at Oxford University. He is a well-respected New Testament scholar and has been working on this ground-breaking translation from the original Greek for the past few years. He is currently working on a translation of the Old Testament, and last year wrote a Lent resource for us, Thirsting for God.
We are very excited about this book and feel it is crucially important and has huge potential. Many of the Bible translations in the English language usually have an element of style and uniformity imposed on them, which is defined by a particular agenda. This could be to amplify the text in order to explain word meanings, to paraphrase it, to produce smooth-reading, to use a limited vocabulary for easy reading, or to produce a translation in more modern English, etc. Nicholas King
