The Cotton Patch translation reads like a letter from your favorite uncle. It's concrete in it's faithful translation, and yet still very much is it understandable by the average reader. I use this translation often for personal enjoyment, and study. While it is not as hard hitting theologically, it is a great translation for reading in bulk and grasping the general feel of certain letters. The letters of Paul were intended to be read in one sitting anyways, and this translation does a wonderfully job at making that doable.

Siting down with a cup of coffee, and this translation makes for a wonderful afternoon of delight. It is a fun translation, and it has a lot of fun treasures inside. Here is one of my favorite verses out of Romans translated here,
"Listen, you all didn't get an old master-slave relationship based on fear; you got a Father-son relationship in which we are entitled to call God `Father'." (Romans 8:15)

There are some flaws however- which is why I can't give this translation 5 stars. I couldn't get over how awkward some of the translating was for certain historical people and people groups. For example, instead of Israel, Clarence Jordan uses the phrase "white american protestants". I understand what he meant to do by that, but I just couldn't get over it. I would have preferred for him to just leave those the same, and translate the rest accordingly.

Either way, I highly recommend this translation! It's fun, light, and accurate.

Humorous version

This book was in bad shape. And I had to have it rebound at Staples. But I guess that's what one gets when one buys old books.

I love this version. I plan on getting the other editions.

Good content! Very helpful in understanding Paul by putting his writing in modern context. Clearly a paraphrase in many places, so not to be used as a primary study Bible, but many valuable insights. This copy was falsely advertised as hardcover; it was softcover.

I think that no person that even thinks of him/herself as being a christian should study this 'bible'. In my opinion it is a very huge mockery of Christ and his life and doings here on earth. I have not personally read the book, but i have heard about it. And as a christian i don't even think it should be thought of like that book puts it, much less on shelves for anybody to be influenced by it.
