Reviews - What do customers think about Holy Bible: From the Ancient Eastern Text: George M. Lamsa's Translation From the Aramaic of the Peshitta?

Outstanding!   Apr 11, 2008
My only complaint is that I would like a hardbound version or one with a more heavy duty binding. Lamsa's translation undoes a lot of the terrible theological debates Christians often become entangled in because the wording of most translations simply isn't correct. I've used this version heavily in study since I acquired it. I have perhaps twenty Bibles and this one is a favorite. This is an eye opening work, and it will change the way you ponder the meaning of a large number of verses in scripture. I highly recommend this one for anyone seeking the Truth and looking to get a better understanding of Christ. Thank you Mr. Lamsa for your work.
Fantastic!!!  Nov 7, 2007
Unlike any other Bible. This is the Bible translated directly from the original language of the disciples. An invaluable translation of the Word.
GIVE ME A BREAK!!!  Aug 7, 2007
The title ''alludes'' to this book being authorized by at least one of the Eastern Churches by saying, 'The Authorized Bible of the Church of the East'. Is this the beginning of a lot of disinformation?

It would seem so as Hebrew was most likely used for Mathew and the book of Hebrews and the rest of the NT written in Greek. Which Greek makes sense, since St. Paul was from Tarsus and the lingua franca of the day was Greek. If you want to write to people in different areas you would write Greek for mass appeal... especially since most of the letters were sent to modern day Turkey and Greece!

As well as Hebrew makes sense, but that should be self explanitory.

However, I can understand personal bias, this is obviously what the author believes. But, back to my original complaint lets go back to the title. It alludes to being authorized by some church in the east... but is missing books from the Old Testament!

Now that is too much disinformation and personal bias for me...
Good Bible  Jun 20, 2007
Lamsa has given us a great Bible. The aramaic brings clarity to passages that either didn't make sense, or seemed to contradict other passages in the my KJV bible. This bible will never replace my Companion Bible of the KJV by E.W. Bullinger, but it's a tremendous resource, and an outstanding translation.
