Back To Bible Basics: New Testament In New Translation

Mar 16, 2018

We talk to the authors of many books on The Exchange. 

But never have we talked to the authors of The New Testament.  And yes, of course, that streak continues. 

But David Bentley Hart has just published a new translation of the newer half of the Bible.  The New Testament: A Translation goes back to the original language, and publishes it quite literally, with the mistakes and contradictions left intact. 

The translator, an Eastern Orthodox scholar of religion, explains his motives and work in a visit to the program.
