Stark Naked Word is an innovative—yet accurate—adaptation of the Gospel of John from the Greek New Testament, challenging contemporary readers with the person and teaching of Jesus. An adaptation differs from a translation in that it imports and integrates imagery foreign to the biblical culture, while remaining faithful to the meaning of the biblical text.Dr. Barclay M. Newman was Chair and Chief Translator of the Contemporary English Version (CEV) of the Bible, first published in 1995 by the American Bible Society.
When you pray, don’t prattle and rattle like hypocrites—
those prancing pious porkers, seeking praise in a pigsty.
Earthly praise is their full reward. Mt. 6.5
