His brother was engaged in writing the NEB.
I ma surprised anyone would admit to that awful attempt to "modernise" the Bible.

I think it was Auberon Waugh who suggested that, whilst the NEB didn't render John 11:35 as "Jesus burst into tears", he was sure they considered it!

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could
