    "Very different from other New Testaments, this is not the work of scholars but of a simple believer who was asked by Jesus and the original authors of the New Testament to rewrite this as they want it to be today. "

    Nuff said.

    The guy thinks he's God. I wonder how many will jump on his bandwagon.

    A very tiny number is my guess. Is this even a flash in the pan?

    Could be bigger than one would think though!

    hasn't the Mormon and JW Bibles sold a lot of numbers?

    Doubt his translation can be any worse than theirs!

    probably same "jesus" that gave us the 'course in miracles" and gave WoF/prosperity teachers their 'revelations"

    probably also same 'spirit" as gave "revelation" to Joseph Smith/pastor russell!

    Not worth my time, or anyone's time, to attempt a corrective.

    If the author really was given his revelation from Jesus and the original authors (I wonder if he could tell us who they were) why is it only for sale? And only at Barnes and Noble?

    A quick survey of the "selected texts" shows how foolish this is. And the "endorsements" page is commical..."a Christian Person" "Catholic Bishop" "Protestant minister"

    It's OK if you just ignore the underlying texts, I guess.

    Gag me with a spoon.

    I can actually sadly see some Baptists excitingly, and acceptingly using this heretical book.
