Just back from two weeks hard study in Poland, I'm delighted that this
issue is back under discussion. I agree wholeheartedly with Chris - in
that we must respect the original translator's method, versification and
books. In Poland, I was with a wide variety of folk, Protestant, of various
kinds, Catholic, and Jewish. All agreed that we need to have the deutero-
canonical books available. (This was even the opinion of a Southern
Baptist from Texas - although he would feel more comfortable if he could
turn the deutero-canon on or off at will).
I look forward to re-doing the New Jerusalem as soon as we have a
method - I have all the missing bits at the ready.
Bless you all,
