For the first time under one cover, we are delighted to present Nicholas King's complete translation of his Study Bible. The translation is from the original Greek and includes the texts often referred to as the Apocrypha. Nicholas King's aim has been to keep as close to the original Greek as possible, frequently incorporating idiomatic or grammatical peculiarities. The result is a translation which is exceptionally stimulating and sometimes startling. Readers will find that it shakes off the dust which often settles on passages that have become tired from over familiarity or frequent quotation.
About the Author
Nicholas King SJ, was born in Bath, UK. He read Classics in Oxford with an intention of becoming a wealthy barrister after that. However to his great surprise, he realised that the only thing that could make him happy was to join the Jesuits, who had taught him at Stonyhurst college. For many after his ordination he was a missionary in South Africa. Currently, he has been teaching New Testament and Greek at the University of Oxford, and most recently he has published a translation of the entire Greek Bible into English.
