Back Translation of the Elvish New Testament

If I still have your attention, here's what it really is:
This is an attempt to render the New Testament into a form of Tolkien's "Elvish" language of Quenya. Since the translator is not even religious, this may be regarded as the ultimate literary monument of Nerddom. Currently, 79 % of the text has been translated.
Neologisms are marked with asterisks. A back-translation into English is provided.
If that sounds like something you need a copy, visit this page.

Thanks to DJ for this one
