NT Wright's New Testament?

According to HarperCollins, a new "contemporary" translation of the New Testament, done by Anglican scripture scholar NT Wright, will be released on September 27th. It will be called The King's Version. My guess, although I haven't looked into it yet, is that it will simply be the New Testament translation he did for the For Everybody series of commentaries published by Westminster John Knox Press.

Thanks for the news. Can't wait as NT Wright is one of my favorite Scripture scholars. And I bet you are correct in guessing it will be the "Everyone's" translation, but perhaps with some updates from his studies and insights since those were first pubished.

So when is NT Wright going to join the Ordinariate?.

Not likely. I believe he has already mentioned that.
