The Books and Writings of J B Phillips

     
   
       
  NEW TESTAMENT IN MODERN ENGLISH
for Schools, 1962 edition. A much-loved translation; the story of the Gospels and Acts, the meaning of the Letters, including Paul's, and Revelation, were never easier to read or clearer
 
       
  NEW TESTAMENT CHRISTIANITY
1956 edition. Deeply thought-provoking and provocative, 50 years on and as vital to the future of the Church and the World as then. In my view, J B Phillips' Christian writings have an even more important role to play than those of C S Lewis
 
     
     
     
   

My interest in J B Phillips came from using his highly-readable translation of the New Testament (bought secondhand for 10 pence) to explore the Gospels, Acts, Letters and the Apocalypse for my own purposes. The results of my researches follow:
