The New Testament: A Rendering

Many translations of the New Testament tread a challenging line between scholarly accuracy and living, spirit-filled words which will inspire a general reader. This unique version, by a priest of The Christian Community, balances the two in such a way that something of the Holy Spirit, working in the early church, can become part of a reader’s experience.

Madsen draws on other translations, including Emil Bock’s seminal German translation, as well as the sacramental language of The Christian Community, to present a singular version which uncovers the living wisdom of the Gospels.

About the Author

Jon Madsen, born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1937, worked in England as a teacher in a number of schools, including Wynstones School in Gloucestershire, before studying at the seminaries of The Christian Community in Shalesbrook, England, and Stuttgart, Germany. He was ordained in 1977 and worked as a priest of The Christian Community in Manchester, Stourbridge, and London before retiring in 1996.

    Where I had difficulty in navigating the process technology I received direct assistance from the Book Store. ..all in timely manner. Very grateful for the service.

    I have only started reading the first gospel, so my comments may be premature. I have found a few typographical errors and in some places the grammar seems odd, however this volume is one that I had no idea existed until my need for a Bible (being away from home for a long period of time) and my inquiry in the Bookstore search reveal its existence. Regardless of the petty issues I pointed out, we truly need this translation available. Thank you for making it so!
