New Testament in Scots

William L. Lorimer

Paperback 2012-05-17

Publisher Description

In making this Scots translation of the New Testament, the author undertook the project of recreating Scots prose, and went to work scrutinizing upwards of 180 translations in more than 20 languages The Greek scholar William Lorimer spent the last 10 years of his life working on this project, in which each Gospel has a different form of Scots to match the different forms of Greek used by the various apostles and scribes. The vigor and immediacy of the language is always apparent. Transcribed, edited, and published by his son Robin Lorimer, this scholarly and dramatically fresh reading of an already familiar text caused a sensation when it first appeared in 1983. Beyond the poetry of the King James version, here are the voices of the disciples themselves, speaking, as they undoubtedly did, in "plain braid Galilee."
