Have any of you ever seen this one? The Cotton Patch Version of the New Testament You can find the text online here, Cotton Patch Version. In many ways I found it to be a refreshingly different look at the Scriptures and in other ways I found it quite disturbing. The author himself admits that it is not a historical accurate version of the New Testament, but he is ardent in his belief that there is a need of this version. A good explanation of the authors reasoning for this need can be found here, Authors View. Here are my questions to you: </font> Is there really need for this version or type of version?</font> What do you think of it?</font> Would you use it or recommend it to another for their use?</font> Are the changes the author makes really necessary?</font> I have been told that it’s racist, do you think so?</font> Some have said that it is ridiculous, heretical, sacrilegious, and dangerous.... Let me know what you think.
