God Didn't Say That

Bible Translations and Mistranslations

And God Said Goes On Sale Today


I’m thrilled to announce that my latest book, And God Said: How Translations Conceal the Bible’s Original Meaning, goes on sale today.

I want to keep “God Didn’t Say That” as commercial-free as possible, so I’ve set up a separate blog for the book here, though the book is about Bible translation, so I’m sure there will be considerable overlap.

More information about the book is available here, and you can even find the book on Facebook. (“Won’t you be my friend?” pleads the book.)

It took me four months and fifteen years to write. I hope you enjoy it.

“Retrieves what the Bible really was.” -The Very Reverend Dr. James A. Kowalski

“A wise and important book.” -Rabbi Harold Kushner
