Professor Holloway invited to participate in updated version of NRSV

Professor of Classics Paul Holloway has been invited to participate in the updated version of the NRSV (New Revised Standard Version of the Bible). Approached in response to his recent critical commentary on Paul's Letter to the Philippians, Holloway will be responsible for the translation of that letter. The revision has been authorized by the National Council of Churches, who own the NRSV, and will be edited under the auspices of the Society of Biblical Literature. It seeks to incorporate into the projected translation developments in text-critical analysis and in the historical critical understandings of the Bible. The new edition will appear in 2019.
