    DescriptionIn his monumental new translation and restructuring of the New Testament, Willis Barnstone, the distinguished literary translator, prize-winning poet and biblical scholar, has sought to rediscover the character of the Bible. His translation is fresh and faithful, seeking to bring back the plain, lyrical, narrative speech of the original Greek. Barnstone has restored the original Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew forms of names (Markos for Mark, Yeshua for Jesus, Galil for Galilee), revealing the Greco-Jewish identity of key biblical figures and their geography. He treats the text as a work of literature, invoking historical and biblical scholarship to revise the canonical selection and traditional sequence of texts. Heavily annotated and including a general study and thorough introductions to each book, "The Restored New Testament" gives a pioneering and powerful literary version of scripture.
