I thank commenter Jonathan for alerting me to an interesting change in the title of N.T. Wright’s forthcoming version of the New Testament. The book title previously announced, including here at Gentle Wisdom, was:
The King’s Version: A Contemporary Translation of the New Testament
Now it has become the following, on the publisher’s product page:
The Kingdom New Testament: A Contemporary Translation
The publication date has also been pushed back from 27th September 2011 to 29th November 2011. (Update, 3rd September: publication date is now given as 25th October 2011. Still not mention of it as Amazon.co.uk.)
Available from Amazon.com: The Kingdom New Testament: A Contemporary Translation.
The old title had come in for quite a lot of criticism, for example in comments on the linked post at Better Bibles Blog. The new one, it seems to me, is much better. Any comments?
