The Bible translation I am most looking forward to this Fall

October 19, 2014

The Bible translation I am most looking forward to this Fall is Everett Fox’s The Early Prophets:  Joshua, Judges, Samuel and Kings.  Fox tries to realize in English what Martin Buber and Franz Rosenzweig accomplished with their German Die Schrift

While I need to wait until November 4th for the volume to appear, it is already partly readable in the “Look Inside” feature on Amazon.  Reading portions of the Translator’s Preface make it sound like this will be an interesting volume.  (Fox’s translation of the Pentateuch is my favorite recent translation of those books.)
