Good day

JB Phillips is a great Bible translation. What would be the possibility to make it available on Logos 8?

There is another thread on this same subject....

Loads of people saying they want this in Logos. So, I went to vote for it and to my amazement found that it had only collected 11 votes.

So it’s not really surprising that there seems to be inaction on behalf of FL.

Just thought I would post this link to something I just came across on the internet. It seems quite genuine and is rather worrying....

Bear this in mind if you are reading the J.B. Phillips translation!

It is a terrible paraphrase.

I would like to have this as well. While I don't always agree with his interpretation, most of the time I really like the insights I get from him, especially if I just want to read through a book quickly.

I notice the advert I assume you copied says it's a translation. It isn't at all. It's good to keep the difference between translation and paraphrase distinct when teaching people. This is one man's personal interpretation and paraphrase of the Greek. I realize that Bibles in any language other than the original have some interpretation and paraphrase but The Message and Phillips anchor the paraphrase end.

Have a great day,
jmac
