    The First Testament

    A New Translation

    by John Goldingay

    Most Bible translations bend the text toward us, making the rough bits more palatable to our modern sensibilities. In this Old Testament translation, John Goldingay sets our expectations off balance by inviting us to hear the strange accent of the Hebrew text unbaptized in pious religiosity. Translating consistently, word by word, this unique interpretation allows us to read the sacred text through fresh eyes.

Harvey Walton take us on an archeological dig, reframing our questions and excavating the layers of translation and interpretation that cloud our perception of these difficult texts.
