Cotton Patch Version: Paul's Epistles
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. Clarence Jordan's now-classic translations bring the far-away places of Scripture closer to home: Gainesville, Selma, Birmingham, Atlanta, and Washington, DC. In this volume, Paul writes his letters illuminating the "God movement" to early Christian churches in the South. Foreword by Will D. Campbell, civil rights activist and founding member of the Committee of Southern Churchmen. Paperback. 171 pages.
