Booty booted from Bi­ble

Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today -

CATHOLIC bish­ops have kicked the ‘‘ booty’’ out of the Bi­ble.

The US Con­fer­ence of Catholic Bish­ops has or­dered a new trans­la­tion of the Bi­ble.

Now ‘‘ booty’’, a word that sets off snick­ers in Sun­day school, will be re­placed by the ‘‘ spoils’’ of war when the new­est edi­tion of the New Amer­i­can Bi­ble, the Englishl an­guage Catholic Bi­ble, comes out on Ash Wed­nes­day, March 9.

Fifty schol­ars and trans­la­tors, lin­guis­tics ex­perts, the­olo­gians and five bish­ops spent 17 years on the pro­ject.
