A translation of the Bible into the language of the city. Rob Lacey reworks the metaphors, situations, and speech patterns of the Bible for the modern, urban reader.
Taking the key texts of the Old and New Testament, Lacey employs the “MTV” dialect of today’s urban city to create a new look at what may be over-familiar stories. Through its modern style, this book acts as an introduction to the Bible for the uninitiated reader while giving a fresh perspective to the church community. A translation that will bring the timeless message of the Bible into the 21st century.
