Word up

Today the Anglican church celebrates the life of William Tyndale. I'm fairly sure the RC church doesn't share in that with us but I could be wrong. The reason I mention this today is because I bought a new book yesterday. It is a new bible reinterpretation call Good as New: A Radical Retelling of the Scriptures which does what I've often pondered about doing which is retell the story of the New Testament with names that don't make the tongue twist. So Caiaphas becomes Guy, Cornelius is Neil and I think my favourite (Taize people and Youth holiday people may understand why!) is that Epaenetus becomes Wayne! Enjoyment of that kind aside, I haven't had much of a chance to explore it yet but I will let you know when I have delved more deeply.
