    Any eta on publication? Should I plan on giving this as Christmas gifts to my families????

  • I am looking forward to reading this NT translation, but I hope you will do the section headings in the same style as the texts.

    I love reading John Goldingay’s First Testament, but I find the clash of styles between the section headings and the text irritating. The latter is Hebrewish, but the former have the tone of a US newspaper editor.

    Scot, I hope you will do the section headings in the same style as the text. Try and make your headings like they would be, if Paul and the gospel writers did heading. Or make the headings in Romans like Phoebe would have put in to make Paul’s letter easier to read.
