Brent's translation of the Bible is the result of 40 years' work, the last 10 of which he read and worked with the Bible only in its original tongues, in order to better accustom his mind to those tongues and their authors' intent.
Every Bible translation has its driving purpose. The purpose of King James' translation of 1611 was to overcome the Geneva Bible of 1560; the purpose of the American Standard Versions of 1977 and 1995 is to reduce translation to word-for-word accuracy; the purpose of the New International Version is to promote gender neutrality and gender confusion.
The purpose of the Common Law Bible, however, is not for mass appeal and sales; but rather, first, to provide its translator with a ready text and notes from which to teach; second, to show that the Bible is the very best law book we have. (People v. Boyd, 311 N.C. 408, 319 S.E.2d 189, 199 (1984) (finding that these words of the prosecutor to the Jury are no justification for reversal of the verdict)).
The foundation of a country’s law and government, writes Brent, lies in its sense of deity—whether false or true. And one discerns a country’s sense of deity by discovering to whom a critical mass of its members attributes final, non-appealable power to decide right from wrong in individual cases; such determinations are law. From time out of memory, men have called such a person, thing, or combination of persons or things with power of a single will "a lawgiver" and "a god". Throughout man's history, including the history the Bible records, a person's—or a nation's—lawgiver is their god. Thus it is said, show me your lawgiver, and I will show you your God.
A lawgiver is often one’s self, another person, the majority of a group of men such as a legislature or court panel, or the true God. If, however, this foundation is other than the Maker of skies and land and all that is in these, it is idolatry: the spawning bed of priestcraft and its ever-present handmaiden called statecraft. No person or country can be any stronger than its god.
There is no avoiding the decision; each American shall choose his god, his final arbiter of right and wrong. Simply put, his choices are only two: he will decide the government of the laws of Nature and of Nature's God, or a government of men; either freedom or slavery; life or death. By his choice, he and his country will evermore tend toward the one or the other.
Moreover, a person or country will become more-and-more like its god. Thus, for a country to identify itself in a man or party of mere men is to suffer the fate of that man or combination of men. Indeed, the Romans said that the voice of the people is the voice of god; therefore, when the people spoke false or no longer cared enough to speak at all, Rome crumbled. Likewise, the French people cried to Napoleon, You are France, and France is you; thus, when Napoleon fell at Waterloo, all France fell with him.
What Readers Say:
Brent's annotated translation is very Blackstonian & Brent is very Wycliffian.
—Greg from Virginia
Brent's Bible translation and notes is truth poured through Brent's personality. His translation is as earthy as the Bible's original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek; his comments are as down-to-earth as the Bible's application.
