NTW Version (Update)

Thanks to Mason we have more info on the NTW translation lifted from his New Testament for Everyone series. The translation will formally be called The Kingdom New Testament: A Contemporary Translation. I think that is better than King's Version since the translator is not a king and you can hardly say that King Jesus authorizes this 2011 version in the same way that King James authorized the 1611 version!

Thanks for the link Michael!
I'm hoping that The Kingdom New Testament really is the final title as opposed to The King's Version, the later strikes me as a bit pretentious.

I understand the desire of publishers to ... well publish. But translating the whole New Testament is really hard work and the translation in the "for everyone" series would benefit from revision.
