The Unvarnished New Testament
This new, innovative translation of the New Testament opens the closed doors of preconception
and allows the reader to view these important Greek writings in an entirely different light.
Based on a radical and startling premise. The Unvarnished New Testament asks
"Why not present the New Testament simply as it appears in the original Greek?"
Most translations of the New Testament are made by committees; they interpret the original text through
theological doctrines and dogmas which arose centuries after the books were written. In this translation
, however Andy Gaus presents the New Testament as it would have appeared to someone reading the original,
unvarnished Greek- as thought 2,000 years of Christian history had not occurred. The fresh approach taken by
this gifted translator strips away the thick layers of convention and 'Biblical' language which often clouds the
meaning of the original words. The approach is simple and direct, portraying an ageless beauty which no
earlier translation has captured. Reading The Unvarnished New Testament makes most people ask,
"Why has no one done this before?"
Unlike other versions of the New Testament, this edition is designed to be easily read.
Gone are the double columns, small type, and verse numbers common to other editations. By eliminating these
obstacles, the reader can encounter the stunning directness of the words themselves.
Comments: This is the best translation I ever have read - the clearness of the text is outstanding and
there is a good introduction of the epistels according to the scientific view of who really wrote them and when.
I always use this translation on my pages, when nothing else is stated.
The Unvarnished New Testament translated by Andy Gaus gets
