Jon Madsen's translation seeks a way between the strictly literal, which might appear dry and archaic, and contemporary idiom, which risks trivializing. He was inspired both by the sacramental language used in his work as a priest and by Emil Bock's translation of the Gospels into German. Madsen, like Bock, is convinced that the living wisdom of the Gospels needs uncovering. He seeks to recover the overtones and subtleties of the ancient language to bring out the hidden depths of meaning.
Jon Madsen is a priest of the Christian Community.
