Cotton Patch Version: Matthew & John
With a distinct Southern dialect, a good dose of humor, and a keen eye for the relevance of the Scripture, Clarence Jordan’s Cotton Patch Gospel Translations call today’s believers to take the words of Jesus seriously and to put them into action in their everyday lives. This volume contains the book of Matthew and the portion of the book of John Clarence Jordan finished translating before his death. It uses Clarence’s striking images and language to help any reader understand the full impact of Jesus’ life and works. As Clarence wrote, "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." Foreword by Tom Key, creator of the popular Cotton Patch Gospel Musical. Paperback. 98 pages.
