Knox Bible Review

Reader Shazamaholic has done a very nice review on his blog of the Knox Bible that he won during a contest I had on this blog last year. So check it out!


Hieronymopolis said...

"Isiah 7:14 has "maid" instead of "virgin"."

Actually, the verse reads “Maid shall be brought to bed of a son.”

"This rendering, which takes all portent out of the prophesied event — meant to be a wondrous sign from God — completely discredits the inviolate virginity of Our Lord’s Mother and the virginal manner of His birth."

In the copy I have, Isiah 7:14 reads;
"Maid shall be with child and shall bear a son, that shall be called Emmanuel."

Matt J said...

And to think, Baronius press has this bible 'in the works'.

Yet they waste time, effort and money on their breviary which is getting pushed back year after year.

Its a shame the Knox Bible isn't readily available, even if only from a literary standpoint, more people should have the chance to read it. It's a piece of literary history that has sadly been forgotten.

Come on Baronius!
