NEW TESTAMENT ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

 

I wish to thank my wife, Lynda, for her love, prayer, patience, selflessness and kindness as I spent countless hours engaged in study and research for this translation. 

 

I wish to thank my father, Harper Brown (H.B. Mitchell), for his introduction of Koine Greek to me when I was a child, for his inspiration to study Greek words, and for his copy of A Manual Grammar of the Greek New Testament, by Dana and Mantey.  I wish to thank my grandfather, Scott Anderson, for his copy of The Emphatic Diaglott.  These two books were central roots of this work.

 

I wish to acknowledge certain scholars who, over the years, have enriched, guided and empowered me through their works.  I pay tribute to Kenneth Wuest, and to The Amplified Bible by describing my version as "Expanded and Amplified," for these had a lasting impact on my life and my study of the Greek New Testament.  The works of A.T. Robertson, Robert Young, William Barclay, R.C. Trench and the scholars who produced the Concordant Literal New Testament. 

 

I want to acknowledge Rudolf Bultmann (Theology of the New Testament) for the idea to re-introduce the Old English word "rightwised" (turned in the right direction) for the Greek "dikaiosune," and to acknowledge William Douglass Chamberlain (An Exegetical Grammar of the Greek New Testament) for the inspiration to expand my rendering of this word as "in accord with the Way pointed out." The suggested dating at the end of each book and letter is based upon John A.T. Robertson's Redating the New Testament.

 

I want to thank my friend Don Luther, who was the first one to type my early translations and who introduced me to the computer, and for the years of encouragement and technical support.

 

I want to thank my friend Eddie Browne, a Greek scholar and a fellow translator, for helping me to think outside the theological "box" when approaching a text, or a Greek word.  This version contains many instances of his influence.

 

I want to thank my sister, Rebecca, for her encouragement and proof reading of this work, and my son Joshua for his feedback and technical support.  I want to thank my friend Kenneth Greatorex for his proof reading of my first draft and for feedback and support in this project, and my friend the theologian and teacher, John Gavazzoni, for his insightful input.
