What will the word “Holocaust” be replaced with and what sort of definition will be used?

“to better reflect modern understanding”

Hey, I know: why don’t we get modern Americans to understand better, rather than changing to reflect their ignorant understanding?

Just a thought - nevermind...

IMHO, changing the word “virgin” to “young woman” is changing doctrine. I went to BibleGateway .com and looked at many of the Protestant Bibles, including modern english ones, and all I loked at use the word “virgin”. As we all know, not all young women are virgins. This is just not right. This us apostacy.

Oh. Well that's the Catholic Bible. Doesn't concern me and my real Bible.

My favorite Bible translation is that of the Jerusalem Bible, which has beautiful English.

It's a rotten translation, and tweaking it around the edges isn't going to solve a thing.

Aside from the hideously pedestrian "Newspeak" English that infests its pages, it's an inaccurate translation. These jokers aren't helping things as far as that's concerned.

Get a Douay-Rheims or an Ignatius Study Bible (CRSV). Or even the Oxford Study Bible is better.

I sure didn't convert to Catholicism on account of the excellence of this translation! au contraire, like the "contemporary Catholic" music (which is neither contemporary or Catholic), it was a stumbling block. And would be to any person of taste.

**to better reflect modern understanding**

This is a bad step. The NAB needs to go back to the original Vulgate and start over!

Bible


"We are compelled to concede to the Papists
that they have the Word of God,
that we received it from them,
and that without them
we should have no knowledge of it at all."
