Kevin Condon

The idea of this book came from a German original: Das Neue Testament für Menschen Unserer Zeit (Quell-Verlag, Stuttgart 1964), the aim of which was to present the New Testament in the down-to-earth colloquial language of the people. The text of the German original could not be used in the preparation of this book, nor was any of the standard versions quite suited to the purpose envisaged here. A fresh translation from the Greek has been prepared, in plain, simple, modern language, and in a free-flowing style. The aim of the book is to show up the contrast between the ideal of the New Testament and the reality of the world around us. Therefore this is not meant to compete with the well-known standard English versions; if it leads to a greater use and appreciation of these its purpose will have been fulfilled.
