Reviews

While new translations of the Bible are constantly appearing, with the vast majority only offering slight variations, Goldingay's translation here offers a fresh alternative, providing a rare glimpse into the language, culture, and worldview of ancient Israel. . . Everyone will love this. * David T. Lamb, Professor of Old Testament, Biblical Theological Seminary, Pennsylvania *
John Goldingay's translation is a magisterial work of theology, pastoral insight, and linguistic scholarship. . . It has immediately become one of the standard translations that I always consult when trying to understand any Old Testament text myself. * Gordon McConville, Professor of Old Testament Theology, University of Gloucestershire *
We hear the familiar flow of passages we know well, but with unexpected and arresting words that make us sometimes pause and think again. This is a book to browse in, alongside your customary Bible version, for fresh insights, challenge and enjoyment. * Christopher J. H. Wright, International Ministries Director, Langham Partnership *
This is a remarkable achievement. . . Tom Wright has a very attractive feel for English; and the mere fact of producing a fresh translation that is both scholarly and written in non-repellent language makes this work a major triumph.' * Expository Times *
Fresh, insightful and accessible. . . this translation directs the reader to new lines of thought and reflection, especially helpful with some of the best known and perhaps over-familiar passages. . . An excellent resource. * The Reader *
I love the easy flow of the narrative, and the way it is broken down into bite-sized chunks. . . This truly is a book for Everyone. * The Good Book Stall *
