The Works of J B Phillips

presented here with the kind permission of Mrs Vera Phillips
and the J B Phillips Estate

The Books and Writings of J B Phillips

for Schools, 1962 edition. A much-loved translation; the story of the Gospels and Acts, the meaning of the Letters, including Paul's, and Revelation, were never easier to read or clearer
1956 edition. Deeply thought-provoking and provocative, 50 years on and as vital to the future of the Church and the World as then. In my view, J B Phillips' Christian writings have an even more important role to play than those of C S Lewis

My interest in J B Phillips came from using his highly-readable translation of the New Testament (bought secondhand for 10 pence) to explore the Gospels, Acts, Letters and the Apocalypse for my own purposes. The results of my researches follow:

The Story of Jesus
