HarperCollins has announced:
A Contemporary Translation of the New Testament
By N. T. Wright
On Sale: 9/27/2011
No more details are given, but Timothy of Catholic Bibles speculates that
it will simply be the New Testament translation he did for the For Everybody series of commentaries published by Westminster John Knox Press.
Well, there is hardly a need for yet another English New Testament translation, but it will be fascinating to see what Wright comes up with. But why the title “The King’s Version”? Who is “The King” here? Not Wright, I hope. But I guess this is just a marketing ploy. Thanks to Eddie Arthur on Twitter for the link.
