Review by

A useful tool for comparative study, no doubt. Still, there is the bent on translating original language terms so as to not upset traditional doctrine(s), rather than "amplifying" the fullest use of the word (appropriate to context). Having read the introduction I am convinced that in all sincerity this translation was conceived as an act of faith to promote Bible reading and comprehension.
