Walter Cummins, a FDU MFA faculty member, discusses Aviya Kushner’s “The Grammar of God” and varying translations of key Bible passages. He explores questions such as, “What if the verb tense means that in Genesis God only ‘began to create heaven and earth’?” Moreover, he writes, “There’s a world of difference between being incinerated in a brickkiln and being forced to toil in brick making.” Walter explores the legal, moral, theological, and other consequences of biblical translation gone wrong.
