Comments: Softcover large octavo, adhesive binding. 475 pp. Scripture text in single column, paragraph - wise with headings; verse numbers summarized; Old Testament citations printed in italics. Brief explanations and few cross references in footnotes. The scripture canon is not according to the traditional order: Anderson rearranges it to deliver first the synoptic Gospels starting with Mark, followed by the Letters of Paul in chronological sequence, thereafter the General Letters and in conclusion the Writings of John.
Anderson dedicates this JAV to his grandpa, Lennart Anderson, who, from 1940 to 1991 taught himself enough Greek to hand write his own version of the NT, based off the Revised Standard Version (1946), which he gave to his grandchild.
The Author, in his 15 paged "General Introduction", does not inform which Greek text he used as the base for his translation. Comparison reveals it is a "critical" text (like that of the UBS). Nevertheless: both longer endings of Mark are presented, the story of the adulterous woman is as usual placed in John 7:53 – 8:11.
