"I welcome the translation of
the Vulgate and the
emphasis on Wisdom
Literature.  The Latin
language and particularly
the Vulgate have had an
enormous impact on the
Christian Church and our
liturgical and theological
Daniel Cardinal DiNardo,
Archbishop of Galveston-

"Out of many available
translations of the Psalms
into English, I find your
translation the best: it is a
very close, linguistically
conscious translation of the
Gallican Psalter – so good
that it can not only help to
disambiguate the more
difficult passages in the
English texts but also help
those whose Latin is not
good enough to be able to
trace the intricacies of these
early renderings into

Since your translation is so
extraordinary among the
existing Modern English
texts, I wrote a section in my
book devoted to it . . ."
Magdalena Charzyńska-Wójcik,
John Paul II Catholic University
of Lublin, Poland

"John, your translations are

"John visited our church as
part of a book signing tour.

scriptures. I encourage John’
s materials for study and
devotional use, and
commend him as an
interesting and compelling

"As I've said before, you've
always been the
consummate scholar and an
incredibly rich thinker. The
books that you're authoring
are welcomed additions to
the ongoing world of biblical
studies – thanks for using
your considerable gifts and
talents to continue pointing
people toward a fuller
understanding of
God's Eternal Word!"
Major Stephen George,
Chaplain, US Army,

"What really pleases me as I
read your translation is the
way you have set it up and
the beautiful way in which
you have caught the
essence of each verse with
elegant English (simple and

"John, thank you for
Psalms! What a refreshing
work! I appreciate your point
about Christ in the Psalms
being key to the early
church . . ."
