George Albert Moore(1893-1971) retired as a US Army Colonel in 1945, after serving in both World Wars. He worked as a lawyer and received a Ph.D. in Political Science from Georgetown University in 1947. He says that he has used a 1950 Oxford printed Greek text as his basis, but has compared it line for line with the Vulgate and various other, particularly Roman Catholic, versions. He says he has “tried to achieve an English text that anybody with a grade school education can read and understand.”
