Click here for sample verses from the translation by Jon Madsen.
Madsen seeks in this rendering a way between strictly literal and contemporary idiom. He draws extensively from the German translation done by Emil Bock (1895 - 1959), who started on the Gospels in the early 1930s. Bock's work was the first complete New Testament done by a clergyperson from the Christian Community, whose theosophical ideology is strongly influenced by the so called Anthroposophy of Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian pedagogue and philosopher. For more information on "Anthroposophy" and more translations by "The Christian Community" see the note at the entry for the translations by Kalmia Bittleston & Stanley Drake.
