new "Living" translation?

Date: Sat May 11 1996 - 17:29:19 EDT

  Just when you thought we had too many translations of the Bible....

  I just ran across an advertisement for a new translation called the _New
Living Translation_. Its a reworking of Kenneth Taylor's _The Living Bible_
 paraphrase by 90 conservative scholars and Bible college professors.

  While I strongly *dis* the Living Bible, there are still folks I know that
bring it to Bible study and read it from the lecturn <gasp>. This new
translation may be an acceptable alternative to the Living Bible paraphrase
that I could recommend to those hard core Living Bible enthusiasts. While it
probably retains a lot of its Baptist theology, hopefully it reflects the
original languages and truncates the interpretive expansions taylor
introduced into the text.

   Anyone come across this translation yet?
