W. J. Bradnock and H. K. Moulton, both translation secretaries to the director of the BFBS, undersigned the undated preface; therein thanks is expressed for this venture having been made possible by W. D. McHardy, who also was responsible for the Translator's Greek- English Diglot, it's predecessor; and Rev. G. D. Reynolds, M.A. who sustained the whole work through nine formative years. Three pages of informative material introduce this New Testament. In the translation notes several other New Testaments are repeatedly quoted: The Revised Standard Version, The New English Bible, Today's English Version, the Jerusalem Bible and William Barclay's New Translation of the New Testament. Textual basis is the Greek New Testament issued by the United Bible Societies in 1966. The rendering is very carefully done, named "formal equivalence" as its unfinished forerunner, the Translator's Greek-English Diglot.
