Product Description

The Cotton Patch Gospel by Koinonia Farm founder Clarence Jordan, recasts the stories of Jesus and the letters of Paul and Peter into the language and culture of the mid-20th century South. Born out of the Civil Rights struggle, these now classic paraphrases of much of the New Testament bring the far-away places of Scripture closer to home: Gainsville, Selma, Birmingham, Atlanta, Washington, D.C.

As Jordan once wrote, "While there have been many excellent translations of the Scriptures into modern English, they still have left us stranded in some far-away land in the long-distant past. We need to have the good news come to us not only in our own tongue but in our own time. We want to be participants in the faith, not merely spectators"

More than a translation, The Cotton Patch Gospel continues to make clear the startling relevance of Scripture for today. These editions come complete with new Forewords and a new Introduction by Habitat for Humanity founder Millard Fuller.

This volume contains the Gospels of Matthew and John.

    Good as a supplement to regular Bible Study

    If this were the only scriptural version available, we would be lacking. As a supplemental version for comparison, bringing a little levity into the mix, I think this is great.

    Bringing the scripture into modern day vernacular is a little dangerous, so should not be taken too seriously.
