Citizens of the Kingdom – A Society Without Status is a book written by the translator of the Pioneers’ New Testament.  In it, she examines the New Testament model of the church as a community of people committed to each others’ welfare as they together seek both to serve the larger world, and to care for and support each other.

    Greetings Ruth:

    I contacted you previously regarding self publishing of the Pioneers’ New Testament through Lulu Publushing. Since then I self published through Lulu a re-formatted elecrtonic Word document of your Citizens book.

    This is a private, print on demand, 6″ by 9″ paperback publication avaliable only to me. It costs me less than $7 per print copy. I wanted to mail you one of the 3 copies I had made for your review.

    I do believe this could be a good way to re-publish your Pioneers’ New Testament at a reasonable cost and gain more widespread exposure of your translation (which I would encourage you to consider – in both paperback and hardcover including a hradcover versions with your translation notes).

    If you have interest in seeing a hard copy produced by Lulu, let me know.

    On a related matter, I was interested in knowing whether or not you have come across a partial NT translation (Gospels, Johns letters and Revelation) by David Robert Palmer. Both you and he put a great deal of emphasis on Greek verb tense and translation accuracy.
