Referred to as "the original modern-language Bible," Moffatt's 1924 translation began the trend toward simpler versions aimed at the general Christian reader. Though Moffatt's emendations may be rather dubious, his translation is still one of the best ways to grasp a book's overall argument.
Once called "the original modern-language Bible," Moffatt's 1924 translation began the ongoing trend of popular English translations geared toward the general Christian reader. Features 10 point font size.

|Under-rated and under-appreciated Bible translation Mar 26, 2007|
| This is a great bible translation and a solid alternative to the King James Bible since it uses similar Greek manuscripts in the New Testament. However, don't confuse this with a King James bible. Old Elizabethan English this is not! This one is written in plain English and is closer to modern English. |
Apparently, this once was a very popular bible translation in the 1930's, 1940' and 1950's. It's ashame it still isn't.
This is slowly becoming one of my favorite bible translation.
|One of Our Treasures. Feb 9, 2007|
|There is an opinion that a not so good translation of the New Testament comes from a failure edition of the Greek. Indirectly, it seems to aim to Moffatt's. But I do not agree to this opinion.|
First; It belongs to a different situation between the skill of translation and a failure edition. Second; So far as the Moffatt's New Testament, his translation is the most refined English among the other English translations except great Tyndale's.
For instance, in Greek [ STRAPHEISA ], he has translated "(She) started round" --John 20:16. Tyndale shows "(She) turned herself" is exactly correct, but Moffatt is very delicate and more dramatic at that scene. Also he has used "Logos" for the Word, --John 1:1, "Nations" for Gentiles, --1 Timothy 3:16. An interpolation of "Enoch" is quite right, --1 Peter 3:19. Undoubtedly, his translation has a poesy, and is elegantly rhythmical (an example --Hebrews 1:1~5); and also is familiar but not so simplified like as Phillips'; is vivid but not so strong like as Goodspeed's; and is more delicate than Lattimore's.
Even if he has been fallen into some unavoidable pits by H.F.von Soden's Greek edition, we should not be detracted his contributions for our faith. He deserves to be honored to this splendid and dignified translation of the New Testament which has been giving the Truth to many people on our earth.
I recommend this book sincerely.
|A short history of the Bible Jan 1, 2007|
|I have owned the Moffatt translation for forty years and consider the introduction the best short (60 pp) over view of a history going back to perhaps 1300 BC and compiled OT in perhaps 700 to 800 BC. I have found introductions to be very important. I have three copies of John Stuart Mills "On Liberty" just for the divergent views expressed in the introductions.|
|A different perspective Oct 4, 2005|
|Like other translations of the Bible, this translation offers a perspective, a new way of seeing timeless truth. I bought it to supplement my library and as an aid to study of the Bible.|
|Interesting Perspective Feb 10, 2002|
|Moffatt seems to present an Aryan perspective to Jewish writings in his liberal "translation" of the Bible. If you already have several other translations and are looking for one which breaks away from the crowd, this may be the translation for you.|
