Bible becomes 2011 bestseller in Norway

The first Norwegian translation of the Bible for 30 years topped the country's book charts almost every week between its publication in October and the end of the year, selling almost 80,000 copies so far and hugely exceeding expectations. Its launch in the autumn saw Harry Potter-style overnight queues, with bookshops selling out on the first day as Norwegians rushed to get their hands on the new edition.

"We only printed 25,000 to start with and thought it would last six to nine months, but it was launched mid-October and by the end of the year it had sold 79,000 copies – it's just incredible," said Stine Smemo Strachan, who worked on the project for the Norwegian Bible Society. "It has only been knocked off the number one spot once, by [literary author] Karl Ove Knausgård … There were people sleeping outside the day before the launch because it was embargoed – it's a bit ironic seeing that the ...

TS, you did not read the commentary on Westcott & Hort vs. Textus Receptus: Which is Superior?, did you? Of course most of their techniques were superior to the inferior techniques of the inferior translators of the AV--Westcott & Hort: Victims of KJV-Only Smear Campaign.

John, UK, I think most knowledgeable Christians know about, Errors in the King James Version… and Erasmus and the Textus Receptus…. Thankfully, Most conservative Christians take a The Biblical Position on The KJV Controversy

Ah yes, I don't even need to investigate which greek text the new Bible will have been translated from. And gullible people actually camped out and queued up for hours to get a hold of a copy. Foolishness.

Jim
That is a historical lie.
We can see by reading the Anglican Liberals Westcott and Hort's own letters that they believed in many heresies such as maryolatry and other RCC religious unBiblical false and pernicious ways. This was known and recorded in the 19th century - and is well documented and known by discerning Christians today.

Wescott and Hort techniques are only used in part anymore, and of course they were better Christians than some of the translators of the AV which means they are much more acceptable anyway e.g.The Influence of An Anglican Archbishop on the KJV and again you did look at? Westcott & Hort vs. Textus Receptus: Which is Superior?

Ahem, this is about the New Norwegian Bible (Westcott & Hort etc blah blah) NOT about the most excellent and well translated Bible which, naturally, is a translation not a Mary-worshipping excuse for a Bible. A translation stands or falls on its accurate translation of accurate copies, and can thus never be accused of toeing any party line.

This is why the Roman Catholics hated the KJV so much. They were unable to doctor it to suit their own peculiar doctrines, unlike their fanatical Dr's who purported to be anglican but were in reality papists.

Well you have to remember that Erasmus was a Catholic priest, in good standing, so it is even better to ask, Is the King James Version a ‘Roman Catholic Bible’?--a rhetorical question the following is from that commentary.

Doug Kutilek wrote:
…in fact even better logic and more convincing evidence--, that the textus receptus is a Roman Catholic Greek text, and the King James Version is a Roman Catholic Bible translation, while in contrast, revised Greek texts as well as major conservative Bible versions made since 1880 are non-Catholic by virtue of their differences from the textus receptus and KJV. This we shall now demonstrate.…

If the Spirit of God is drawing people to the Bible, to read it and understand it and obey it, then I too will join with you in rejoicing over a great work of God.

But I think you'll find I'm right when I say it is not God at all, but very clever filthy lucre marketing strategy, whereby folks are gulled into thinking they're being offered something special, when all the time it is only the Vaticanus (named after the Vatican) and Sinaiticus (named after the Sinai desert monastery where it was found).

Oh, no, John UK, not more that tripe about Westcott & Hort vs. Textus Receptus: Which is Superior?

I'm glad to see the Norwegians are getting back to the Bible and then contemporary Norwegian which of course is a major point, Restating The Obvious About Bible Translations.

Tyndale-Bible.com wrote:
A clergyman hopelessly entrenched in Roman Catholic dogma once taunted William Tyndale with the statement, "We are better to be without God’s laws than the Pope’s". Tyndale was infuriated by such Roman Catholic heresies, and he replied, "I defy the Pope and all his laws. If God spare my life ere many years, I will cause the boy that drives the plow to know more of the scriptures than you!"
The History of William Tyndale and his Bibles

It should give something for you, not-your-Pope, to think about and definitely something for Protestants to remember.

This CCC quote is even older than Tyndale.

It comes from "Commentariorum in Isaiam," St. Jerome (347-420).

"In 2000 work started on revising the 1978 translations. Five years later the New Testament was published and the full Bible in both languages will be finished in 2011. In addition to the principle of using a modern and easily understood language, the translators now emphasize a much closer connection to the original texts in Hebrew and Greek."

From Norwegian Bible Society which is a member of the ecumenical United Bible Societies.

More Westcott & Hort, Kurt Aland tripe.

More money wasted as gullible people think to be getting something new which will whet their appetite for spiritual things. Just like the NIV did - not!
