The Revised English Bible

Logos is about to release its Revised English Bible module to which I say- good!  The REB is the best English translation of the Bible so far.  It’s brilliantly done and exceptionally crisp.  When asked which translation (in English) I recommend, I always say the REB first.  It’s just spectacular.  I absolutely love it.

If you don’t read Hebrew and Aramaic and Greek and you depend on translators for your knowledge of Scripture, you can’t do better (in English.  The best German translation is the Zurich Bible).

    And yet it persists in the spurious translation from its predecessor the NEB of ‘glossai’ as ‘tongues of ecstasy’ (1 Cor.13:8) – where does ecstasy come into it, apart from the theology of the translators? Sorry – I didn’t trust NEB, and I don’t trust REB, either.
