It's called the Cottonpatch Version (of only, I believe, the Gospel's
and the Epistles) by Clarence Jordan (whose biography, _The Cottonpatch
Evidence_ is worth reading). I can't tell you anything about the idiom
used for 2nd pers. plurals. But I do recall that Peter is given the name
of Rock Johnson.
