    I have not read this book, but if I win it I certainly will! The difference between bible versions is so important and so little known by virtually everyone- I hope this book brings this issue to light!

    I have been reading reviews and comments about this book. It sounds like it would be a great addition to our library of Bibles and references.

    Translation allows us to gain a greater understanding of the original, and this book enriches our understanding of that complicated process.

    Do you accept international entries? So many of these competitions restrict winners to the USA. If you do the same, please remove my entry but also amend the post to say so.

    IMHO, Joel Hoffman’s blog, “God Didn’t Say That” stands head and shoulders above other similar blogs, so I look forward to reading his book, which I’m sure will be *great!*

    Looking forward to reading this book. The process, and politics, of Bible translation has always fascinated me.

    This sounds like a book I’d better read!

    It would be really interesting to read this. I have always thought that there was something lost in translation when it comes to the Bible. I love my Bible but I would love to be able to know what it really said.

      And God Said is available on Kindle, but this giveaway is just for a hardcover book, which will be signed. (We haven’t figured out yet how to offer signed e-books!)

    I have GDST on my blog roll too, I think – and it’s going on all my blogs if I don’t. My blogroll is on a separate ‘page’ referred to by the four blogs I write (http://stenagmois.blogspot.com/p/blogs-i-am-reading_06.html).

    I am a layman who is interested in studying the Hebrew scriptures but am sometimes confused by the varients in different translations. The proliferation of translations lately makes it even more difficult. I only learned about this book today, but am hoping it will give me some broad guidelines to better decide what the original text actually said without my having to learn the language itself.

    I love and study the Bible as all of us… I collect many translations… studied Greek NT for 3 academic college years… I look forward to studying this book!

    Would love to win a free copy of your new book ‘And God Said’. I participate in a local theology discussion group with about 10 other spiritually connected individuals – this might be a good book for our next book discussion. Thank you and God Bless You!

    I know that this book won’t explain everything God meant to say in the Bible, but it really hope it’ll be close 🙂

      And in the meantime, enjoy the book.

    Joel’s writing is a joy to read. It is free from the stench of politics, and never fails to illuminate. If I win this book, I vow to kill the first person that walks through my door, as a sacrifice to God. Just kidding. 🙂
