Editorial Reviews

Review

I welcome the translation of the Vulgate. The Latin language and particularly the Vulgate have had an enormous impact on the Christian Church and our liturgical and theological formation. Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston --Letter

As I've said before, you've always been the consummate scholar and an incredibly rich thinker. The books that you're authoring are welcomed additions to the ongoing world of biblical studies thanks for using your considerable gifts and talents to continue pointing people toward a fuller understanding of God's Eternal Word! Major Stephen George, Chaplain, US Army --Letter

More About the Author

John Cunyus is a free-lance writer. He
spent twenty years in the ordained ministry,
serving churches in Texas, before becoming
involved on a full-time basis with the
non-denominational "Latin Testament
Project."

In 2008, John Cunyus and Searchlight Press
began a full-scale translation of St. Jerome's
Vulgate Bible into American English.
Incorporating the latest textual advances
from Roger Gryson of the German Bible
Society, Cunyus and Searchlight set out to
craft an edition that would capture both the
vigor and simplicity of Saint Jerome's late
4th Century CE classic.

Each volume contains introductory materials
to both the Vulgate as a whole and to the
individual books translated. Cunyus
explains the history of the Vulgate and, more
importantly, why a Vulgate translation
matters today.

Please note that this is not a "regular" review but simply a notice that the $15.99 paperback edition of the book is English only and does not include the Latin. If you want both English and Latin, you need to order the other paperback version that costs $25.99. I'm putting this information in a review because the description is not very clear.

I put five stars even though I haven't gotten the book (the one with the Latin included) yet, but I have ordered it. To post this information, I had to give a star rating. I will put more information after I receive the book and have a chance to read it.

I called Amazon CS to try to figure this out before I ordered, but the rep did not have an answer. I contacted the author to be sure I was ordering the right book. He very promptly and nicely provided the answer! I look forward to reading it and seeing how well my college Latin holds up!

I have this on my kindle and use it to review my Latin. A 3 x 5 over the English verses allows me to translate and have help at hand when necessary. I use it for a scripture group to compare various translations. It is a nice addition to my own "Library of Alexandria".

This book never appeared on my tablet and I was hoping it had been cancelled, because I really wanted to cancel the download and when it didn't show up I thought I was successful. Not what I expected when I reviewed.

The translation is too literal and sometimes just wrong. The formatting of the text runs the verses together making it difficult to read.
