I don’t have time to chase this one down, but according to Rod, somebody (aka “The Shack Bible Project”) intends to offer a paraphrase of the Bible that is more in line with the vision of God presented in The Shack (which is, in turn, supposed to be much more in line with patristic thought).
I don’t know about you, but I love the idea of re-translating the Bible so that it lines up better with a particular theological perspective. That would certainly make theology a lot easier. I think I’ll get started on my own translation of Romans. That books has caused me way to much theological grief over the years, and my own personal translation would definitely help. I think I’ll add some unicorns.
