Most attempts to translate the Bible into contemporary English fall flat because theyre blatantly agenda-driven or because they rescue the Gospels from limp Victorian prose only to encrust them in awkward contemporary jargon.

The Acts of Jesus, by contrast, listens closely to the Greek styles of the Original texts, then renders each distinctive voice in modern English. Consequently, Luke sounds like a good college English professor, but Mark sounds rougher, like street language. The text is color-coded--words in red indicate events that the translators believe to have actually taken place, for instance--and the volume also includes exhaustive commentary and indices by the members of the Jesus Seminar. Only the heartiest of readers will make use of all this auxiliary information. For most of us, the freshness of the language (You scholars and Pharisees, you impostors!

Damn you! You slam the door of Heavens domain in peoples faces.) is the most valuable discovery in The Acts of Jesus. --Michael Joseph Gross
