Yours truly is one of 41 bloggers contributing to the Lenten Blog Tour, sponsored by the Common English Bible people. (“How many bloggers does it take to screw in a lightbulb…?”) My assigned scripture is Luke 23:32-43, and my reflection will appear on this blog on Maundy Thursday, April 21.
I’m very pleased to promote this new Bible translation, which is sponsored in part by the United Methodist Church. I’ve been reading and enjoying the CEB New Testament since last summer. The entire Bible will appear in August.
I trust the many scholars who have been involved in translating it, at least a few of whom are faculty at the Candler School of Theology, my beloved alma mater.
