Holy Censorship or Mistranslation? does a close reading of the Bible and its translations, and shows that negative Christian attitudes to sexuality are not rooted in the sacred text but in centuries of tradition. Mistranslations into Greek, Latin and other languages that occurred early, and the serious errors that continue to be committed by translators today, are also responsible for misplaced controversies. Combining meticulous scholarship with an accessible style, this book offers essential learning into a subject that affects millions today.
