Do we really need another New Testament translation? Decidedly, yes: and we always will. Not only is our language constantly changing, but “the Word of God is living and active” among his people, who are constantly being given new insights into his ways. If God’s people are to take him seriously, and learn to live in faithfulness, we all need to be sharing every bit of understanding that we are granted, for none of us is big enough or wise enough to grasp all the riches of his truth. For this reason, there will never be a “final” or “definitive” translation. The “best” translation will always be the one that is constantly in process, among a group of people whose one consuming passion is to learn together to please the Lord. I hope that this is one contribution to that effort.
Why a new translation?
