From the "Good grief!" department:New Bible translation has screenplay formatnews.yahoo.com/bible-translation-screenplay-format-085746946.html"NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A new Bible translation tackles the challenge of turning ancient Greek and Hebrew texts into modern American English and then adds a twist: It's written like a screenplay.Take the passage from Genesis in which God gets angry at Adam for eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil:"Adam (pointing at the woman): It was she! The woman You gave me as a companion put the fruit in my hands, and I ate it."God (to the woman): What have you done?"Eve: It was the serpent! He tricked me, and I ate."Later, Eve bears her first son, Cain."Eve (excited): Look, I have created a new human, a male child, with the help of the Eternal."----"It's written like a screenplay", should have the modifier; "It's written like a CRAPPY screenplay."My eyes would be bleeding if I tried to read the WHOLE Bible, written like that.
