This rare miniature Moffatt New Testament is in excellent vintage condition, under the removable paper cover. The owner has signed the flyleaf and it is interesting to note that this has travelled to Canada from England. Although the flyleaf date is 1955, I believe this is a 1949 version. It measures approximately 5" x 3-7/8" and is 5/8" thick, 348 pages. I've noted a very short history below.

James Moffatt (1970-1944) produced his translation of the Old and New Testaments while he was serving as Professor of Greek and New Testament Exegesis at Oxford. The Moffatt version Bible is highly colloquial, and allows the reader to quickly follow the progress of thought in many passages where a more literal rendering makes for difficult going.
