The incarnation is the most accurate and articulate translation.

Any sincere student of classical music would sensitively seek to capture and interpret the piece so as not to distract from the original sound of the composition.

To form an accurate conclusion in the study of our origin would involve a peering over the Creator's shoulder as it were, in order to gaze throug

I’m a total geek for English translations of the Bible. And if I’m honest, my favorite versions are almost always those translated by a single woman or man. They carry so much personality in them. I love seeing the theological viewpoints that come through, and discovering how the translator perceives a given passage. Few things make me more excited than discovering a new translation I didn’t know existed.

So I was quite excited indeed, while reading C. Baxter Kruger’s Patmos, to find a reference

Unusual, excellent paraphrase of New Testament Scriptures, especially in Colossians. Great read. Page formatting needs balance, but otherwise well worth the purchase.

FANTASTIC Expression of the Gospel - it stirs the heart and soul to be in agreement with God and the good news of the completeness of our salvation, our oneness, our true selves mirroring HIM.

This Bible mostly consist of books from the New Testament that have been translated from the original Greek. Du Toit plans to have a more complete Mirror Bible, including books from the Old Testament, at a future date.

Such a fun translation of the Bible from a true scholar who understands the finished work of the cross and the nature of grace as a non-transactional, free gift that every human being is living in whether they realize it or not. I'm looking forward to Francois translating the rest of the New Testament!

Excellent paraphrase of key NT sections that capture the amazing ness of Grace and an image of Father through the lens of Jesus vs an image of Father through OT law/legal point of view - a Father who invites all into His family room view rather than a court room.

No Bible like it ever! After reading it in it’s entirety it WAS NOT really a Bible at all just a paraphrase of Francois’s experiences. Some parts are beautiful, however, his theology of ALL ARE SAVED IS HERETICAL. We all MUST CHOOSE CHRIST TO BE SAVED!

“Beyond the tablet of stone, the papyrus scroll or parchment roll, human life has become the articulate voice of God. Jesus is the crescendo of God’s conversation with humankind; he gives context and content to the authentic thought. Everything that God had in mind for man is voiced in him. Jesus is God’s language.” 9 likes
