Praise for Nicholas King

Nick King combines outstanding scholarship with wide teaching and pastoral experience in different contexts. His work reflects all that is best in contemporary biblical study, and his remarkable translation of the Bible arises from that lifetime of service.”
– Christopher Rowland, University of Oxford 

“Fr Nicholas King is an experienced teacher of the New Testament, having been lecturing and guiding study of the New Testament at Oxford University for many years. Like his own translation of the New Testament, his teaching is always lively and original, the product not only of scholarship but also of prayer and devotional reflection. As well as being a scholar, he is also valuable as a spiritual director. 
– Dom Henry Wansbrough, O.S.B., University of Oxford

 “Father Nicholas King, best known and admired for his fresh translation of the entire Greek Bible, has been an inspiring and much-loved teacher of biblical studies and Greek in South Africa, Oxford and most recently Boston. I warmly recommend his wisdom, spiritual insight and seasoned expertise in introducing the New Testament.”
– Professor Markus Bockmuehl, Keble College, Oxford
