Item Description...
J.B. Phillips, best known for his translations of the New Testament, wrote Ring of Truth out of a deep concern for many Christians whose simple faith was being eroded by the widespread dissemination of views of certain modern scholars challenging the accuracy and reliability of the Bible. Phillips' experience in translating the New Testament convinced him that what is written in the Gospels, however much modern scholarship may try to explain it away, has indeed "the ring of truth." In this personal statement of faith he shares the exciting discoveries he made in the course of translation, and his delight in them; he communicates the fruits of his scholarship and his intimate knowledge of the New Testament; but even more he offers his spiritual certainty to those Christians who may be bewildered by destructive tone of much writing about the Bible. The average Christian dismayed by such arguments will be reassured by this testimony of a New Testament scholar who is still convinced of the validity of the Bible and its relevance to contemporary life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Dated but deeply helpful  Jun 20, 2008
To listen to a scholar from earlier in the 20th century
makes me realize how fully inclusive language has become the norm now.
Aside from his language context, however, the depth of insight
from this translator of the New Testament is well worth the read!
Ring of Truth  Mar 16, 2007
This is an excellent book because Phillips is a respected translator of the New Testament and because it is well written. Phillips gives his feelings about whether the New Testament is an authentic account and whether Christianity has a solid foundation in this account. He expresses himself with conviction.
Tune Up Your Ears, Listen With Your Heart  Jan 15, 2007
This is a wonderful little book. Phillips describes how, as a translator, he had to engage deeply and thoughtfully with the original Greek text of the NT. Not only does he find the text to be historically accurate on a wide range of details, he finds that the stories "ring true." Jesus comes across not as a deified philosopher, but as a real, complex, and powerful personality--a human being who was gentle and caring with children and social outcasts, but strong, courageous, and confrontive in challenging the hypocrisy of the highly revered religious powers that be. Phillips specifically lists a number of places where the close attention required by translating brought him face to face with suprising, sometimes shocking, new ideas about Jesus, God, and humanity. This book is well worth every penny you will invest in it, and every moment of time you will spend reading it and thinking about what it says.
