I'm appalled: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazin...ment-a-translation-david-bentley-hart/546551/ Being a collector of bible translations myself, besides having studied several foreign languages as well as having some acquaintance with the art of translation myself, this is embarrassing. He is oblivious to the fact that the NT was written in common, everyday Greek and not 'bad Greek' as the author shamefully states. This was the make it accessible to everyday people and not to be esoteric, elitist garbage. Sadly, people like this are championed by the media and fringe academics as heroes. Good thing I am hardly swayed by this. Thing is, people who get academic degrees are hardly infallible unless they really care about their field. They can answer everything they need to get the degree and then use their education very badly. I am surprised at people who have attended Dallas Theological Seminary only to end up as professed Christians practicing reiki and mindfulness and the new age Jesus.
