I can't rate this version of some of the Christian scriptures highly enough. It is amazingly fresh, imaginative, engaging and bold. It will startle and delight Christians and many more. Like the Bible itself, it deserves to be a bestseller. Adrian Thatcher, Professor of Applied Theology, College of St Mark and St John, Plymouth I found this literally a shocking read. It made me think, it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me angry, and it made me joyful. It made me feel like an early Christian hearing these texts for the first time. Elizabeth Stuart, Professor of Christian Theology, King Alfred's College, Winchester It spoke to me with a powerful relevancy that challenged me to re-think all the things that I have been taught. Tony Campolo, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, Eastern University With an extraordinary vigour and immediacy, Good as New constantly challenges, surprises and delights you. You may not agree with all its renditions-I defy you to-but you will find yourself rethinking what you thought you knew. Over and over again you feel like you're reading about Jesus for the first time. Ship of Fools Certainly lives up to its title. Not simply another translation but a recreation of the original power and immediacy of the Gospels and Epistles. Scientific and Medical Network Review.
