Have any of you seen this "Bible" published in 2003 by Peterson? Psalm 1 is shocking - I didn't realize that I was reading it as it was so distorted.
My teacher in Religious Science 160 - has mandated that we read this text for our course. We have to read Deuteronomy, Job, Isaiah, Romans, The Gospel of St. John, and Revelations.
He said that the use of the slang would make many people angry, and that was his purpose in assigning this translation.
It seems that his whole purpose in our class is to shock and destroy the faith of young college students.
We have some very vocal and upset muslims in our class also.
Please pray that I will say the proper words - everything I have attempted to say the professor turns against Christianity.
